Liveblogging SXSW: David Carr, others discuss how tweeting & blogging get in the way of working

We spend so much time tweeting, blogging and checking everyone else's tweets and blogs, when are we supposed to get our work done? Well, why don't I live blog and tweet the "I'm so productive, I never get anything done" session at South by Southwest to get some answers?

The panel includes New York Times media writer David Carr, Reuters Proposition Leader Anthony DeRosa, "Internet personality" and writer Molly McAleer, and Atlantic editor Ta-Nehisi Coates. Even if I don't figure out how to manage my time better, at least I'll be productive, whatever that means, for an hour.

To see what people said about the session, check the #busy hashtag on Twitter. And if you're a journalist and have trouble multitasking, take a look at this Poynter seminar: "The Reporter's Impossible Assignment: Doing It All Well."
