"When the technologies we use every day collapse our experiences into 24/7 availability, platforms for personal branding, and products to be monetized, nothing can be quite so radical as . . . doing nothing. Here, Jenny Odell sends up a flare from the heart of Silicon Valley, delivering an action plan to resist capitalist narratives of productivity and techno-determinism, and to become more meaningfully connected in the process"-- Provided by publisher.
We live in a world where our value is determined by our 24/7 data productivity. Odell delivers an action plan to resist capitalist narratives of productivity and techno-determinism. She shows readers that doing nothing may be our most important form of resistance-- and how to become more meaningfully connected in the process. -- adapted from jacket
