Multitasking Issues Discussed in the News
The New York Times has published four articles this week in the “Your Brain on Computers” series. Below are links to each one:
- Hooked on Gadgets, and Paying a Mental Price
- An Ugly Toll of Technology: Impatience and Forgetfulness
- More American Sense a Downside to an Always Plugged-In Existence
- The Risks of Parenting While Plugged In
The articles follow on the heels of recently publish book, “The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains” by Nicholas Carr, which expresses the authors concerns that the Internet is causing irreparable harm to the way we interact with and process information. I’m currently reading the book and will post a review next week.
