An essay pointed me to a book called "How to do nothing: resisting the attention economy"
And I thought this passage interesting:
I begin to identify some of my most serious grievances with the attention economy, namely its reliance on fear and anxiety, and its concomitant logical that "disruption" is more productive than the work of maintenance--of keeping ourselves and others alive and well.
This is the essay that pointed me to the book.
