behold, the interruptron

At the risk of becoming the first Internets Anonymous blog, I thought that all those of you out there who feel like your habits are getting out of hand might like this useful tool to monitor your focus: the interruptron.

It’s just a neato little gadget that lets you monitor when you’re working on task and when your attention drifts away (the name seems to suppose that others are interrupting you, but I think we all know that you are the biggest interrupter you’ve got to deal with).

  1. Statements about how sometimes people interrupt their work *as much as every 10 minutes* makes me feel like my brain is some kind of alien being. My brain is constantly cycling through things like the way the eye saccades.
