This book provides a long-overdue account of online technology and
its impact on the work and lifestyles of professional employees. It
moves between the offices and homes of workers in the knew
"knowledge" economy to provide intimate insight into the personal,
family, and wider social tensions emerging in today?s rapidly
changing work environment.



Drawing on her extensive research, Gregg shows that new media
technologies encourage and exacerbate an older tendency among
salaried professionals to put work at the heart of daily concerns,
often at the expense of other sources of intimacy and fulfillment.
New media technologies from mobile phones to laptops and tablet
computers, have been marketed as devices that give us the freedom
to work where we want, when we want, but little attention has been
paid to the consequences of this shift, which has seen work move
out of the office and into cafés, trains, living rooms, dining
rooms, and bedrooms. This professional "presence bleed" leads to
work concerns impinging on the personal lives of employees in new
and unforseen ways.



This groundbreaking book explores how aspiring and established
professionals each try to cope with the unprecedented intimacy of
technologically-mediated work, and how its seductions seem poised
to triumph over the few remaining relationships that may stand in
its way.
