Sleepless forevers

Get ready for 24-hour living – New Scientist

Thinking Brave New World and being reminded of Abbreviated Human, especially by this quote at the end:

Stanley believes that drugs like modafinil and CX717 will tempt people to overdose on wakefulness at the expense of sleep. “Being awake is seen to be attractive,” he says. “It’s not cool to be asleep.” Foster has similar worries. “It seems like that technology will help us cope with 24/7, but is coping really living?” he asks.

It’s almost cheesy (as was AH), but interesting to observe.
