11/6/07: The Autumn of the Multitaskers

Walter Kirn

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Reaching for his cell phone with a newly delivered picture message, the author Walter Kirn swerved off a snowy two-lane highway and landed in a steep embankment. It was then that he began to rethink the usefulness of technology like the refrigerator-TV set and the camera-phone. In this November's Atlantic Monthly, Kirn writes about multi-tasking and Tuesday he joins Doug to talk about how doing so much is dumbing us down.
