There's been a steady increase in talk around continuous partial attention (what with Twitter and all) so I here's the mother lode: Linda Stone waxing lyrical and expanding our vocabularies.
Leisa's slides from the IA Summit in Vegas. Looks like it was an excellent presentation, channelling the spirit of Kelly Goto and Jeff Veen.
Quite possibly the cutest thing ever captured on video.

Meri asked me a few questions about public speaking. I was only too happy too answer them.

Khoi has posted the slides from his grids workshop online. Download and learn.
The first public alpha release of Apollo is out. Grab the runtime and then play around with some of the sample apps (none of which are that impressive but it's the thought that counts).
Another fun toy that uses Twitter's API, this one from Richard Pope.

A mesmerising mashup of Twitter and Google Maps. I could watch this all day.

Todd Levin of tremble.com pens a truly hilarious write-up of South by Southwest Interactive 2007.
The Dunbar number gets bandied about a lot in conversations about social networks these days. Here's the original paper that shows the research behind the oft-misused term.

Now Admiral Ackbar is on Twitter too. "It's a traaaap!"
Jessica's English translation of a 19th Century German poem in the public domain – possibly the only English translation of this poem in existence.

Paul's voice has been sampled from his this'n'that magic trick and used for this stop-motion animation. Brilliant! I <3 mashup culture.

I'm living on the cutting edge, apparently. This article is more like a press release meets an annual report, completely missing out the real reasons why Brighton is a cool place to live and work.
Did you notice that Upcoming recently switched from liquid to fixed? Have your say about that here.
Aral has been busy whipping FlashAid into shape. Now let's get busy kicking the tyres.
Ning has relaunched as a roll-your-own-social-network service. I guess that leaves Yahoo Pipes unchallenged in the roll-your-own-mashup field.
Meri has created a wiki where would-be speakers can get advice and mentoring from established speakers. I don't know if I'm established but I'm offering my services.
Gareth has mashed up Google Maps with meatspace geek gatherings in the UK.
