    MARK: I view the coining of the phrase “continuous partial Attention”(CPA by Linda Stone as right up there with Information Anxiety and Future Shock as coinages defining the times we live in.

    My motto: “Too much stuff -too little time” defines the dilemma leading to the malaise of CPA that I believe can only be addressed by living up to the maxim coined by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe ” Less is More”

    My passionate search for ways to synthesize through visualization and compression may offer some hope that we can escape the vicious cycle of CPA and what my friend Mark Anderson calls AORTA (always on real time anywhere)

    Remember the play and movie from 1966:Stop the World I want to Get Off or was this before your time?
