Multitasking and technology

There was quite an interesting article in the New York Times about how technology (specifically the multitasking that it invites) affects our brains. Among other things some studies have found that people who rate themselves as big multitaskers actually perform worse at tasks you'd think multitasking would develop. You can test yourself and see how you rank in focus and in switching tasks. I scored surprisingly well considering I first meant to read this article online almost a week ago, and then finally read it in the New York Times bit of the Observer whilst painting my nails, drinking coffee and organizing my Sunday...

I'm a total sucker for tests.
