Is Leisure Dead? Exploring Time Poverty in the Digital Age
January 8, 2015
In this episode of The Digital Life, the first of 2015, we discuss the design of time, and in particular, the rampant busyness of the digital age — what has been described as the time poverty of knowledge workers.
It seems like the work of the digital worker is never done. Software helps users complete tasks more efficiently, but there are two sides to that coin.

Join us as we explore that question.
