What is busywork?
A noun: work that keeps a person busy but has little value in itself.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with being busy, spending time doing productive work adds commensurable value to the time spent.
But there is something fundamentally wrong with busywork at the expense of the deep main currents in our lives.
The concept of busywork dates back to the 18th century, an era when the Industrial Revolution was trying to find its footing. The advent of mechanized production and the replacement of workers with mechanized tools increased the amount of busywork of employees to justify their wages.
In the digital age, where information travels across the globe with lightning speed, powered by digital tools and platforms, work is collaborative: man and machine. This is also true in the legal space. Tech applications are no replacements or substitute workforces, they serve to optimize legal and business processes.
