I’ve finally had a Twitter moment. I’ve been exploring Twitter, trying to understand what everyone finds so fascinating. My Twitter moment was watching the stream go by, and reading Jeremy Keith’s tweet: “I’m coining the phrase: Continuous partial Christmas.” I’d just come back from Walgreen’s and seen the Christmas decorations going up right along with the Halloween costumes.
Multi-tasking is often really only continous partial attention. Retailing is now just continuous partial Christmas.
