Linda Stone served in senior executive roles at Apple and Microsoft, did pioneering work in multimedia technology and applications in the 1980s and early ‘90s, and in social computing technologies in the ‘90s.

She coined the phrases continuous partial attention, email apnea, screen apnea, conscious computing, and essential self technologies. She believes that essential self technologies, technologies that support autonomic resilience, embodiment, and emotional self-regulation, offer the most effective approach to health.
