Continuous Partial Attention

ft silent I can see it now... (245 comments)

So how long until some reject decides this is a disease and demands compensation?

Some loser is going to sue the boss on the grounds that their work-environment has cuased this menacing, life robbing, depression afflicting, makes-you-bald, and worst of all sex-drive-killing disease known as C.P.A. to fall upon them and ruin their life. Becuase the boss made them carry a walky-talky cell phone with both Yahoo AND AIM.

I agree with the article in that people are getting too easily distracted, but the solution is a matter of restraint, respect, and discipline...Just turn it off or down or dont answer unless you are in an appropriate situation. Live communications=1st priority.
