    Interesting article, Laurie. And I certainly agree that determining if a user looked at a digital ad is a far better way to go than using "impressions". One thing, though. As I recall from published data, Lumen has found that a typical digital display ad's attentive "dwell time" is only a few seconds so I'm not clear on how using this kind of metric improves the "environment" of digital ad campaigns. It obviously has a bearing on which sites to use by advertisers---all other factors such as CPMs held constant---but did they make clear what they meant by improving the "environment"---is that editorial environment or does it refer to mitigating the negtive effects of excessive ad clutter? Or is it something else?

    The issue at the moment is assessing the value of each of the recent plethora of attention metrics.

    I also note that "Attention metrics has become a foundational metric to drive positive business outcomes...".

    The question is, whose business outcome - the media owner so as to be able to sell more ads more easily, or the advertiser?
