Labour & Leisure

When I said the line between labour and leisure is getting increasingly blurred, what I meant was that I labour at a computer with keystrokes and clicks, and in my leisure time find myself doing pretty much the same thing.  Whether I’m surfing porn, or writing this blog, my actions are immediately and habitually mediated by electronics.  If there ever was a trend, it is this: the increasing presence of silicon.  Couple this with the tendency to store, record, and archive even the minutest transactions in out lives, and what do we have but a vision of a solid state economy.  1984?
