Taking the Multi-Task Myth to Task

Michael Larsen Michael Larsen Profile: Michael Larsen

Over the years I have had a love/hate relationship with RescueTime. I love it because it tells me what I do while I am online. I hate it for the same reason. When I scan my weekly or monthly log, a common reaction is "Ugh! Really? I spent [x] hours this...
