I like browsing tumblr. I like the android app for tumblr. I use it a lot. This is bad for work. I don’t want to un-install it. I want to get used to NOT browsing tumblr while working.
Solution: Yet another Tasker profile that makes me browse either very early or late in the night.
* Load App - Tumblr (add as many apps as you want/need ie. Facebook)
* Day of the week - Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat (yes, that’s my week)
* Time of the day - 8:00 to 19:00
* Disable Wifi
* Disable Mobile Network
* Vibrate Notification: NO!
* Kill App - Tumblr (add the same apps as added above)
Next: do the same in laptop… pffft
Or pretend to have it.

Vi Hart on Spirals, Fibonacci, and Being a Plant, Part 3!
As the authors were offering their final points at the end of the Q&A, [Steven] Johnson hit on a metaphor that, for once, everyone could agree on: the city.
The city, like the internet, is noisy, distracting, overwhelming, and potentially isolating. But people choose the city for its stimulus and connection, says Johnson, “and for me technology is like that: I know the cost, but I choose it.”
[Sherry] Turkle jotted down the metaphor on her notepad before responding:
“The best artists learned to find solitude in the middle of the metropolitan space,” she said. And “we need to learn to find solitude in the technological space.”” —Lonely, but united: Sherry Turkle and Steven Johnson on technology’s pain and promise (via ayjay)
