The Creative Tension of CPA

In February I posted this in response to the increasing notice of Linda Stone's meme "Continuous Partial Attention".

Thoughts Illustrated: Who is Linda Stone and why should we listen to her?

Today I will meet with Stowe Boyd who argues with Stone that the Social Presence tools like Twitter and Pownce, and to some degree, Facebook, offer a "flow" experience that we need to accept as a "gift" from our AORTA technologies.

Perhaps Stowe can enlighten me on how he manages his "flow"

Although this is from an article in InfoWeek last February it restates the key issue in designing tools for collaboration for enterprise.

"For the Enterprise 2.0 strategy to work, it's essential that Web collaboration tools be used to streamline communications. If they just add another channel, they'll only make the communication and collaboration problem worse."
Business Tech Pros Wary About Web 2.0 Tools In Business -- InformationWeek Daily --

As we consider integrating a social presence tool in our collaboration suite, we need a way to "manage" the multiple channels competing for our attention. I think the solution will be to provide meta-level visualization of the flow so we can comprehend its meaning. David Brin's Holocene vision?
