Anyone out there thinking?

Multitasking is not only not thinking, it impairs your ability to think.  Thinking means concentrating on one thing long enough to develop an idea about it.  Not learning other people's ideas, or memorizing a body of information, however much those sometimes may be useful.  Developing your own ideas.  In short, thinking for yourself.  You simply cannot do that in bursts of 20 seconds at a time, constantly interrupted by Facebook messages or Twitter tweets...
