Link Log

This is a place where I put links to things I think worth reading.

This page is sort of an hack to my personal problem: I like to read, learn, keep up to date with things. But it’s also a huge time sink. So from time to time I stop reading.

Reading was not bad, what I was reading was. I was reading stuff whose value I could not justify.

What I decided was I needed a better method to decide what to read, and after cutting the number of things I read, what is left, I want to read them well.

So this is my filter: does what I am reading deserve to be on this page.

This filter lets me want to read quality stuff, as I am kind of making myself addicted to the reward to adding a link here, which I kind of equate with doing something worthwhile for the day, else the day is wasted.
