Surviving the Age of Distraction

We live in a time of constant distractions and interruptions. We’re at the beck and call of our mobile phones 24/7. We're bombarded by e-mails at our desks and on our smart phones. And text messages often break our concentration. On the next Sound of Ideas, hear an encore presentation about how all of this impacts our lives --- at home and in the workplace --- and how we can best adapt to it. Program originally aired Aug. 24, 2011.Paul Skalski, assistant professor in the School of Communication at Cleveland State University.
