That 15-minute thing was a total "Aha!" for me.

I really liked that one, too.

A related one, which I probably read on a geek-related web site (possibly the Jargon File), was about signalling your presence and intention to speak to someone rather than immediately saying something; the page said that someone in hack mode might acknowledge the presence briefly (e.g. by raising their hand) but appreciate the ability to finish their train of thought (or at least commit it to paper/text so they can pick it up again later) before they task-switch.

I wish Stella would do that kind of thing more, since it takes me quite a while to task-switch back to what I was doing before.

Heh, that's funny, because there's one guy at FreshBooks who is infamous for hovering -- he just comes by and stands there and you have no choice but to interrupt what you're doing, but he acts as though he didn't interrupt you because you did the interrupting yourself.

There's a happy medium, I think.
