"The Autumn of the Multitaskers"

From “The Autumn of the Multitaskers,” an essay by novelist Walter Kirn in the November Atlantic:

“Where do you want to go today?” Microsoft asked us.

Now that I no longer confuse freedom with speed, convenience, and mobility, my answer would be: “Away. Just away. Someplace where I can think.”
