Organizations Going "Topless"

It's happening! The backlash to multi-tasking we've been talking about is making the news. Companies and schools are banning the use of laptops and other mobile devices during presentations and meetings. Checkout this news clip from ABC News. (Of course, you have to first “pay” attention to a brief commercial.) After viewing, please let me know your thoughts.

Then what is the opposite of multitasking? I don't know such a thing! Wish it were possible at work.

Greg, try "mono-tasking." It will be an uphill climb trying to convince others that we are more productive if we focus on one task at a time when it involves front-of-mind attention. Best of luck. TPC.
