The Paradox of Young Lifehackers

In a recent article I wrote for Flak Magazine, I investigated the growing popularity of lifehacking among young people. “Since when,” I asked, “did twentysomethings, the demographic that previously gave rise to the beatniks, hippies, punks, and slackers, care about something so prosaic, so establishment, as to-do lists and reclaiming wasted time?”

My quest for an answer took me in unexpected directions, from “a small group of Silicon Valley geeks, to a young professor, who, during the early ’90s, began to get strange results from a simple experiment.”

I’m interested to hear how my conclusions match up with your personal experience.
