attention span. i am conscious of my own attention span coming down. researchers are talking about evolutionary (rather revolutionary) change in our brain processes (inability to do any deep thinking) thanks to information overload and consequent reduction in attention span. 

we are quite incapable of multi-tasking. but with reduced attention spans, we don't want to  be doing only one thing at a time. we sms / talk while we drive; we talk and email at the same time; we read or think of something sitting in a meeting; laptop when watching TV; checking facebook is a constant even when we are busy with other activities. we now want to do many, at least two, things at a time. exergaming.

god, er evolution, save us.
