Abstrakt

This book chapter considers how time can be studied in the design and discourse on digital reading artefacts, such as the Kindle. It asks what role conflicting markers of time plays and suggests a basic framework with which to discuss the strategies and means through which time is intentionally referenced in the design and discursive mediations. Thus, the chapter suggests a starting point for temporal criticism of design, not only as objects of design history, but as objects designed with a history. The broader aspiration is an understanding of how temporal markers are employed to give meaning to the many electronic artefacts of the digital age in which we live.
