Public Books — Siri, Why Am I So Busy?: An Interview with Judy Wajcman
"Judy Wajcman, a sociologist at the London School of Economics, tackles that paradox in her recent book, Pressed for Time: The Acceleration of Life in Digital Capitalism. Neta Alexander talked with her for Public Books about the history of busyness, why we haven’t reached an “End of Work” utopia, and why iPhone meditation apps aren’t the solution."

Changing perspectives on how scientists should allocate our most scarce resource -- time - The Plainspoken Scientist - AGU Blogosphere
"My experiences over 37 years reflect a general cultural change among scientists who now accept their role as communicator to explain the value of public investments in research and how scientific knowledge can best inform policies. However, scientists today struggle to determine how much of their precious research time should be re-allocated to outreach and communication."

The 'Busy' Trap -
"“The goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play. That’s why we have to destroy the present politico-economic system.” This may sound like the pronouncement of some bong-smoking anarchist, but it was actually Arthur C. Clarke, who found time between scuba diving and pinball games to write “Childhood’s End” and think up communications satellites. "

A Day Without Distraction: Lessons Learned from 12 Hrs of Forced Focus :: Tips :: The 99 Percent
"Here are the rules: All work must be done in blocks of at least 30 minutes. If I start editing a paper, for example, I have to spend at least 30 minutes editing. If I need to complete a small task, like handing in a form, I have to spend at least 30 minutes doing small tasks. Crucially, checking email and looking up information online count as small tasks. If I need to check my inbox or grab a quick stat from the web, I have to spend at least 30 minutes dedicated to similarly small diversions."
