How much do you really get done while multitasking? Our speaker today, Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, has spent the past twenty years studying people, technology, and the worlds they make. A professional futurist with a PhD in the history of science, Pang is a former Microsoft Research fellow, a visiting scholar at Stanford and Oxford universities, and a senior consultant at Strategic Business Insights, a Silicon Valley-based think tank. Pang's writings have appeared in Scientific American, American Scientist, and the Los Angeles Times Book Review, as well as in many academic publications. We appreciate the reminder that it is more efficient to compartmentalize tasks, instead of attempting everything at once!
