There Is Nothing New Under The Sun

Reading Gibbon’s Decline and Fall, I found this about the Emperor Julian (361-363 AD): “... he could employ his hand to write, his ear to listen, and his voice to dictate; and pursue three separate trains of ideas without hesitation and without error.”  Who says that multitasking is something that came in with computers?? The Romans gave us that, too! :-)
