New USENIX blog posted

Date April 21, 2010

A while back, Anne Dickison asked me if I'd contribute an entry every once in a while to the USENIX blog. I enjoyed blogging for them at LISA, so I agreed. Today, my first entry went up, and it's about multitasking, and discusses whether humans have a hard limit to what they can do at once. It has implications in how heavily we task ourselves and what we can do when we've got to heavy a load. Check it out, and let me know what you think.

    Another great article Matt. In general I have noticed that I can only handle two tasks at one time...though I have often "over clocked" myself but it usually just leads me to over heating. Enough over heats and I get burnt out then the old processor in my head starts to really slow down ;)
