Link List

Wel­come to my link library. These are not links to con­tent I have cre­at­ed unless you see that men­tioned in the link’s descrip­tion.

The Digital Workplace Is Designed to Bring You Down - The New York Times

Dig­i­tal the­o­rist Cal New­port is argu­ing for a new way to work. I like his idea of slow pro­duc­tiv­i­ty: What I’ve iden­ti­fied is three prin­ci­ples: doing few­er things, work­ing at a nat­ur­al pace, but obsess­ing over qual­i­ty.
