Not now

A Guardian article about 'blackspots' of isolation from the global internet and mobile phone networks mentions the statistic that:

The productivity benefits of being "always on" are almost purely illusory: one typical study, among Microsoft employees, found that they took an average of 15 minutes to resume their focus on a serious mental task after being interrupted by an email or instant message.

I'll have to gently point that out to my boss (a PhD in psychology, which means she's disinclined to be contradicted on such topics), who disagrees with my request for extended periods of uninterrupted focus.
