Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 167!  Happy News Years!

The SPaMCAST 167 features an essay titled The Case Against Multitasking. The essay begins:

To multitask or not to multitask, that is the question.  Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of mono-tasking or to take arms against a sea of trouble and by opposing do least appear to do more.  Is the discussion of mono-tasking versus multitasking a tempest in a teapot, a true productivity killer or perhaps are we really discussing how we segment work?  Depending on how you define the word, I believe it is the later.  The problem is that like so many other words we have conflated a number of concepts into a broader idea.
