UK Study: Messages Lower IQ

http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/europe/04/22/text.iq/index.html?section=cnn_tech

CNN piece about a study out of the UK that finds folks are too distracted by email, messaging, etc. Bit that resonated the most with me:

"Companies should encourage a more balanced and appropriate way of working."

Heck yeah! I need to ponder the implications here of the IQ stuff, but here's another vote for balance in our library and information lives. Handle only the information you are comfortable with and know when to unplug.

With that, dear readers, I am UNPLUGGING for the weekend.
