The always-on, simultaneous society in which we have found ourselves has altered our relationship to culture, media, news, politics, economics, and power. We are living in a digital temporal landscape, but instead of exploiting its asynchronous biases, we are misguidedly attempting to extend the time-is-money agenda of the Industrial Age into the current era. The result is a disorienting and dehumanizing mess, where the zombie apocalypse is more comforting to imagine than more of the same. It needn't be this way.


Douglas Rushkoff -- teacher, documentarian, journalist, and author -- discusses insights from his recent book "Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now" with David Weinberger and a live audience at Harvard.
