We live in a paradoxical age marked by the widespread perception that life is faster than it used to be, that quick access to people and information will free us to do other things, and simultaneously, most of us have experienced this creeping sense that time is slipping out of our control. That perception is a source of concern and even anguish considering the need we feel to follow the pace “imposed” by technology. The chapter starts by exploring the concept of time, from Heidegger's notion of time as temporality, the lived time, to the concept of real time, inherited from human-computer interaction studies, reflecting the immediacy and simultaneity that characterizes temporality in the digital age. The chapter discusses different perspectives of temporality, considering its relations to technology and power in four main intersections: temporality and technology, temporality and real time, temporality and power, and temporality and deceleration.
