In addition to that I received one cellphone photo and two intriguing articles.
The photo came from my youngest daughter Rikke, B.Sc. in Psychology, but at the moment Telemark Skier at Hemsedal, Norway. It could have been presented tomorrow as Sky Watching, but today and tomorrow it will snow and more difficult to see nature as it was yesterday.The first article I received was about Mulitasking and
the second about The Life Cycle of a Blog Post The system map (Click the photo to see graphic better) is described in the article from Wired. You may investigate deeper yourself. However, to rise your interest:
You have a blog. You compose a new post. You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web. Within minutes, if you've written about a timely and noteworthy topic, a small army of bots will get the word out to anyone remotely interested, from fellow bloggers to corporate marketeers38 comments, hundreds of visitors, thousands of tags in databases. You are not alone when blogging.
The Danish text, from Politikken (the first article), many of you have no chance to understand so I give you my version of the topic:
Human Multitasking is:
The ability of a person to perform more than one task at the same time.
This is often seen as a female habit. Men can to the best concentrate on one task at a time. Women can take care of many tasks. May be that is why we meet mostly women as fellow bloggers.
Women check emails, download music, read the news, communicate through texting, talk in cellphone, are driving cars, make dinner and “take care of” children and partners at the same time.
Men have problem enough with swapping TV programs. Agree?
I believe many of my visitors know somebody that may fit into the description.
I do not dare to comment further on the argument in the article saying that multitasking also creates stress-related hormones like cortisol and adrenalin, and thus makes you slower and “dumber”? Waste of energy?
That is why men say Breaks are important. When you calm down, do nothing, do not answer when your partner asks why you only are staring silly and empty into the air - seeing nothing - do not worry.
- Men are only recharging for the next task.
