The great Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project and other bestselling books, recently interviewed me; I talked about my work and life habits (good and bad), my relationship to time, and my ongoing struggle to be the boss of my laptop and not the other way around. You can read the whole Q&A on Gretchen's website

Recently, for Heleo, I sat down with my friend and neighbor Doug Rushkoff, the author of Present Shock and many other smart books, to talk about how technology has changed our experience of time. We covered a lot of ground: caveman time, Dopamine Week, Thomas Edison and the virtues of oblivion, the little-known 25th hour in the day, and much more. A video and full transcript of the conversation can be found on the Heleo site here. Go check us out!

That would be my brother, Stephen Burdick, a highly acclaimed graphic designer and illustrator in Boston. He also knows a thing or two about Hungarian folk dancing and, the year Jaws came out, he built the best Halloween costume I ever saw, an extremely realistic ten-foot-long papier-mâché great white shark, which two people could carry over their heads like a canoe. (Our family vacations typically involved a lot of canoeing and portaging.) Check out Stephen's work on his website, and follow him on Twitter (@sburdesign) and Instagram (@sbdrawn).
