Continuous partial attention

Paying simultaneous attention to a number of sources of incoming information, but at a superficial level.

Different from multi-tasking. The two are differentiated by the impulse that motivates them.

When we multi-task, we are motivated by a desire to be more productive and more efficient. Continuous partial attention is motivated by a desire to be a LIVE node on a network, and to be more connected and updated.
