Multitasking Not Good For You

OK. I'm typing this, while listening to Internet radio, chatting with Viviane on the phone (she's Mrs. Library Boy) and chomping on a sandwich (getting crumbs and sauce all over the keyboard).

Maybe, multitasking is not such a great idea.

And maybe everything HR gurus have been trying to feed you about those chatting/texting/IM'ing/YouTube watching/"born with the Internet" dudes and dudettes from the "Millennial Generation" who can do everything all at the same time and who are about to invade your workplace is so much rabbit poop:
"An interesting post this morning from Merlin Mann on his 43 Folders blog about recent research on multitasking. This includes yesterday's New York Times article which cites several studies including one looking at Microsoft workers and the effects of interrupts on their work." [from the Library Laws Are Meant to Be Broken blog]
