Is “d) All of the Above” the best choice?

multitasking by Wireman

This morning while seeking a solution to an annoying software bug, I stumbled on The Multitasking Myth from David W. Boles’ Urban Semiotic:

This push to be “on top of things” by doing too many things creates a white noise experience in the brain where priorities are equalized and perspective is minimized.

The result is an ongoing and never-ending buzz that cannot be discerned or condemned because the quivering emotional electricity is coming at you from everywhere and nowhere and so you live in a constant state of undefined fuzziness.

About the photo: It’s titled multitasking and was taken by Wireman. In true multitasking fashion, I flickred through a ton of shots of multi-monitors and multitasking moms before settling on this one. I chose it because I think it shows how multitasking is becoming so central to our culture that it’s ingrained in the fabric of our lives.

    Thanks Grace. When I saw it I was struck by how natural it looked to have someone who was walking, with groceries, reading, jotting something down.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she had one of those ear buds in too.
