1.20 - The Multitasker

MONKEY ISLAND, OCTOBER 1986 - She might look like just another street entertainer, but there's more here than meets the eye. For this woman is a groundbreaker and she doesn't even know it.

Not many people realize that the ability to multitask, highly praised in business, actually began with street performers here on
Monkey Island.

Look closely at the picture.

She's playing a tin whistle, with a marionette on each arm, and another puppet operated with her foot. A pure example of multitasking. Additionally, though you can't tell from the photo, she's insulting the tourists under her breath!
