3/13/08: The Autumn of Multitasking

Salt Lake City, UT – Remember the promises made by the makers of the microchip? That connectivity would liberate us from an earthbound existence?

Thursday morning, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Kirn about multitasking and how it's actually dumbing us down. (Rebroadcast)

Read Walter Kirn's article The Autumn of Multitasking in last November's Atlantic Monthly.
