Really enjoyed this video by CGP Grey on attention. I agree with the general point of his video - in fact those types of ideas are what guided how I designed this website.

Let me know what you think, it's inspired me to cut a few social media outlets out of my life (namely reddit and twitter). Rather than abstaining, I might try limiting these platforms to "weekends only" or maybe "Tuesdays and Thursdays" (you get the idea).

Sorry I haven't implemented link support yet, I think I've finally settled on an idea worth implementing. I'll try to get it rolled out sometime next week. Hope you're having a nice weekend!

Protect your time and attention.

Fwiw, I kinda like not having link support; just plain text. But I'm probably the minority view.

Thus far the video reminds me of a Cal Newport talk, on a theme he covers in an excellent book Deep Work.

Great topic. I find that I can detach from the internet (and other stimulations) while in the company of others... but never alone. I’m not sure whether this is due to boredom or loneliness / anxiety.

@raleigh I really liked that Cal Newport TED talk, have you read the book? I think I’ll have to check it out.
