Time is running out for 2013, and if you’re watching time, it’s already 2014 in Australia. But what does that mean really? For most of the time in our lives we are looking at time, but it’s hardly something we examine except for the days around New Year. We count time, we change time, and we are trying to get more of it because it’s never enough despite all of our gadgets and devices.

While we may fool ourselves into thinking that technology will help achieve more and accomplish more things in the new year, it may be a good time to examining the use of technology and our perspective on time. To get us started in the discussion, this great lecture from RSAnimate, featuring Professor of Psychology, Philip Zimbardo of Stanford University.
