By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Remember the promises made by the makers of the microchip? That connectivity would liberate us from an earthbound existence? In an essay for the Atlantic Monthly, the writer Walter Kirn described another scenario - the digital universe as an unsustainable investment of human energy. 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.
