Here’s a good question:

If digital technology saves time, how come so many of us feel rushed and harried? Technological utopians once dreamt of the post-industrial society as one of leisure. Instead, we are more like characters in Alice in Wonderland, running ever faster and faster to stand still. Is digital technology at once the cause of time pressure and its solution?

The (proposed) answer is that we’re making conscious design choices with our technology that need to be challenged – and changed.

Food for thought on a Sunday morning.
