"We're not ever in a place where we can make a commitment to anything,"
she explained to me when I called her a few days later. "Constantly
being accessible makes you inaccessible."
-- Linda Stone, former Apple and Microsoft executive, who has coined the
term "continuous partial attention" for people's immersion in the
distracting world of e-mail, instant messaging, Web surfing, and blogging.
Cited in Steven Levy's Newsweek article, "(Some) Attention Must Be Paid!".
