Though I prefer to focus on one task at a time instead of multi-tasking, I can identify with the new tablet computers that allow for multiple apps to be in use at one time. Sometimes, one task requires multiple tools.
Efficiency is something I strive for, and I value my time - time saved and time used well. (I should probably emphasize the word strivehere. Efficiency is a goal, but not always a reality for me.)
I also identify with books.
Books are a very real part of the marketplace, communicative and aware of contemporary issues, but standing apart from them and usually one step behind.
As much as I might like to be "up on the newest things", most of the time, I'm not. Books, by their nature, are one full step behind the latest news and trends - unless the news and trends stick around for at least nine months while a book is being written, edited, printed, released and distributed.
