How to Do Nothing

This is great, and I'm really happy for the author to have a big book that's moving units. (I follow Jenny Odell and really like her past generative / excavative artwork!). But I think her talk at Eyeo 2017 is a better statement of her thesis, and you can just read it or watch the video. But I'm totally sold on this concept that the attention economy is a scam, there's an ever-creeping demand for your time that only benefits companies, and people are valuable even if they don't produce anything.
