Listening to some podcasts, I came in touch with the concept of continuous partial attention by Linda Stone.

As far as I understand is a kind of ‘evolution’ of the concept/myth of multitasking following the new era of always connected / super  – communication / multimedia / social network …

The idea is that we are moving from ‘do many things in the same time’ to ‘scan the continuous alerts we are receiving to select the best to get/act upon’.

Have a look at this  post on O’Reilly radar in which you can read notes from a speech by Linda Stone about this topic.
