We define a new notion of Pseudoproductivity, which we call Pseuductivity. We leave it to the reader to mentally fill in the rest of the page with pseuductive blather....

  1. Recent studies have shown that pseuductivity may be more common than we might think. For instance, a recent meta-analysis suggests that up to 95% per-cent of so called "blogging" is really a form of pseuductivity, while upwards of 99.99% of major articles are exercises in pseuductivity, both for the authors and for the readership. Pseuductivity is characterized by the illusion of doing useful work, but after the episode of pseuductivity subsides, we realize that no useful work has been done, and indeed may not even be able to recall what we were working on. It is speculated that many industries and careers are based of pseuductivity, including advertising, most sectors of finance, and upwards of 50% of theoretical scientists and artists.
