Our lives are governed by ‘fixed’ time schedules with activities aligned to school and work start/end times, public transport schedules, facility opening hours and deadlines. The rise of the ‘anytime’ 24 hour society has led to increased consumption of goods and services, the take-up of non-standard work schedules (e.g., rotating shifts), and a more dynamic approach to activity planning, leading to the constant ‘hectic’ pace of life many of us feel. Coupled to this is how laptops, smart phones and PDAs, linked to ‘social networking’ have revolutionized when, where and how people communicate in work and at home, softening ‘time’ and ‘space’, allowing social relationships to revolve around the appreciation of the relativity of friends and colleagues in personal time.
