How technology subtly influences our interaction with time

I very much enjoyed this pair of companion essays by Paul Ford about the passage of time, and about how technology has changed the way we reflect upon and mark time:

I think Ford is a great writer, if somewhat unusual. It's well worth digging through his archive and paying attention to what he writes. Sometimes one of his pieces just entirely passes me by, but usually I find lots to think about in his work.
