The Autumn of the Multitaskers

Another article from The Atlantic, this one from last year. “Multitasking, a definition: The attempt by human beings to operate like computers, often done with the assistance of computers. It begins by giving us more tasks to do, making each task harder to do, and dimming the mental powers required to do them. It finishes by making us forget exactly how on earth we did them (assuming we didn’t give up, or ‘multi­quit’), which makes them harder to do again.” The Autumn of the Multitaskers.
