    1. The motivation in writing this paper is to examine some of these ideas about time and technology. The notion that digi-tal technologies in themselves have a temporal quality that is problematic is questionable.

      Lindley claims that previous HCI studies of time have tended toward moral panics and technological determinism. Brings to mind Wacjman's work and Hassan's book "Empires of Speed."

      I'm curious about what she means here, as the next section describing Shoenbeck's study doesn't quite fit the argument:

      "The notion that digital technologies in themselves have a temporal quality that is problematic is questionable."

    1. Liberty! Freedom! Tyranny is dead!— Run hence, proclaim, cry it about the streets.

      Cinna speaks on behalf of all the conspirators in this exclamation: "Liberty! Freedom! Tyranny is dead!" The forcefulness of his cries reveal the true emotions towards Caesar's reign. In particular, the conspirators consider him a self-centred tyrant. This opinion is justified with two reasons:

      1.The tribunes believe that centralising all authority to one man is undemocratic and is detrimental to the Roman Republic;

      2.They envy Caesar's might and fear potentially losing their power to the Empire.

      The rejoice of the conspirators does not align to the panic and grief experienced by the general society and Mark Antony. This juxtaposition suggests that Caesar's assassination is more destructive than it is justified.

      In fact, the 'liberty' and 'freedom' that is promised does not manifest under the conspirators' rule.
