Generation_D: One of those opposites things."Oh, thats interesting" -- no it isnt.
To deem something "interesting" is to promise to return to it. It's a judgment that doesn't really say anything, beyond forestalling that judgment, like a (per Ngai) "sticky note" amid an endless wash of data. At its most thoughtful, calling something "interesting" might be an expression of indeterminacy, a placeholder for a future conversation. But more often than not, it's just conversational filler, something dropped in when you don't feel like judging at all.
