“Douglas Rushkoff and the Terror of Modern Time”

From the description:

Published on Mar 25, 2013

Douglas Rushkoff thinks you’re doing time wrong.

Over the course of 20 years, 15 books, and countless speeches and articles, the famed media theorist has established quite a following among technophiles. But while his past books warned about the perils and responsibilities of digital citizenship, his latest book — “Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now” — is all about time. More specifically, it’s about how people are ruining their lives by approaching time in unhealthy ways.

Sound a bit heady? Don’t worry. To slow things down a bit, we took Mr. Rushkoff to Sutton Clocks, a sales and repair shop for antique timepieces on the Upper East Side. There, amidst the ticks and tocks, Mr. Rushkoff told us how misunderstanding time can cripple a workforce and tempt you to make dumb decisions.
