We’ve looked at the phenomenon of “continuous partial attention” before in a post by Joel Alleyne. Now Linda Stone, the coiner of the phrase, has a wiki that’s all about the topic, for those of you who want to pay more than, well, partial attention to it. At the moment, though, there’s simply a definition of the problem and a few links to her talks and press. I imagine more will be coming.
Perhaps as interesting, if I’m not skipping too hastily to another point, is the tool she’s using, JotSpot, which is a free (in its basic form) wiki that’s structured more like a Web 2.0 collaborative tool, i.e. for those who are perhaps less geeky than the pure wiki crowd. Here’s where you can find a substitute for the sequestered Writely, as well as a spreadsheed function, the ability to upload files, to comment, and to share editing with others.
