Information overload, and an expectation that e-mails, tweets, and text messages will be answered immediately, impact productivity. The younger, information-addicted workers have a greater capacity to process this open floodgate of information, as well as a better ability to multitask. Research suggests that there is a marked drop in worker productivity because of e-mail, phone, and social networking interruptions. A study by Intel (Zeldes, 2007) found it took people an average of 25 minutes to get back to work following an e-mail interruption. A 2008 study from AOL found that out of 4,000 e-mail users in the United States, 46 percent admitted to being "hooked" on e-mail. It appears possible that this "always available" information stream can impact one's productivity, family relationships, and health. In this article, the author discusses how to fight the digital attack.
