Atwell credits Joseph Esposito (current CEO of Giantchair.com) with the concept.
See http://toc.oreilly.com/2008/12/interstitial-publishing.html. Esposito actually hones in on an important aspect of the issue troubling Carr, "… interstitial publishing is confused with having a short attention span, as though a moment is somehow less valuable than an hour. The key to this new form of publishing, however, is that it views the short period of each entry not as a watered-down version of the "real thing," a long text, but as something built perfectly for the space and time it occupies." Esposito's idea is that literary forms will gradually be adapted to fit our current lifestyles and needs while Carr's concern is that if we wire our brains too much for this style of reading, whether on the Web (replete with hyperlinks, another distraction in Carr's view) or on mobile devices, then those brains will be less capable of immersive or contemplative reading of longer and more complex arguments and narratives. Part of what readers may be doing in that brief span of time noted by Esposito is something called document or information triage, a concept that has been floating around in research circles for a few years.
