Twitter...Blackberries and the Age of Constant Interruption

Maybe it is due to my age (just kidding), my appetite for reading full sentences, my general dislike for reading long treaties online, whatever it is I have not succumbed to Twitter or Blackberries for that matter.

I still read books and magazines in print besides my online browsing.

I do not share my cell phone number with everyone. I do give my e-mail to many people but then I can always filter what comes in and decide on things that deserve my attention.

Overall I hate Constant Interruption and even though Twitter made front page news of the Financial Times today, I do not see myself Twittin' anytime soon.

How can we start and finish anything if we are constantly distracted from the task at hand?
