“Ethan Tussey offers an exciting and foundational concept—the 'procrastination economy'—that is sure to have a long life and change the way we think about entertainment and mobile technology. Insightful and original, incorporating both industry insight and audience use, this book takes a smart approach to a new media phenomenon.”
—Amanda D. Lotz, author of The Television Will Be Revolutionized
“A lucid and innovative rethinking of the cultural politics of mobile media. Building on astute, site-specific fieldwork, Tussey picks apart moral panics and tired corporate paradigms alike. The book shows instead how complex adaptive behaviors now constitute industry-user interactions within the “in-between times,” “non-spaces,” and strategic “mobile day-parts” of digital and social media. This book forces scholars and developers alike to question the sacred cows of media specificity and new technology exceptionalism.”
—John T. Caldwell, author of Production Culture: Industrial Reflexivity and Critical Practice in Film and Television
