What cocktail parties teach us

This is the title of an article today in the Wall Street Journal.  The subhead is:

Brain Is Wired to Focus on Just One Thing; Which Tasks Are Easier to Combine

 It;s all about how we humans are built to focus. Multi-tasking is, well, inhuman.  A few monkeys pretend, but we lose all effectiveness.

 See this.  I am a "member" so it may not work for you.  I can email it to you, if you want. (But 'you' can't be too many people.)

Scrum tries hard to help the team focus. And not be interrupted.

I usually like cocktail parties anyway.  Now more.
