Mobile devices allow us to shift and personalise time. They allow us to visit places before we arrive and to remain in places after we have left. We renegotiate our time on the fly, and schedule soft meetings with flexible boundaries.
They allow us to fill what would previously have been dead time.
We dignify an occasion by switching off our mobile devices to devote our time to the present.
