This is your Brain on Computers

A recent article in the NY Times highlighted real time examples and social-mediaresearch related to the internet and multi-tasking. What was particularly intriguing about the information shared, was that our super-busy multi-tasking electronic environment only gives the appearance of being more productive. In reality, less is accomplished and the deep focus necessary for creative endeavors is often hard to access. Read the article at the link below.

    Thanks for bringing this to people’s attention.

    “The way we become more human is by paying attention to each other”

    “A significant fraction of people’s experiences are now fragmented.”

    “While many people say multitasking makes them more productive, research shows otherwise. Heavy multitaskers actually have more trouble focusing and shutting out irrelevant information, scientists say, and they experience more stress.

    And scientists are discovering that even after the multitasking ends, fractured thinking and lack of focus persist. In other words, this is also your brain off computers.”

    I’d write more, but I can’t concentrate long enough….

    Thanks so much, Deborah, for helping to make people more aware of this developing problem. Nicholas Carr has recently published a book about it, “The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains.”

    I see this as one of many indicators that modern technology is causing a major erosion of our ability to concentrate; in fact, I just posted an article about how a powerful antidote to this problem on my blog.
