Links, Week 8: Back home

My last week in New York, I spent 24 hours online. My first week back home, I've spent 43 hours.

Blogging: 25 hours, 20 minutes.
Time Suck: 11 hours, 51 minutes
Neutral Time: 3 hours 21 minutes
Email: 1 hour, 43 minutes
Literary: 1 hour, 19 minutes

The 11 hours of wasted time looks pretty bad, but let's look at it in a different light: I've maintained a 2:1 ratio of writing time versus wasted time. That's something to be proud of. And I hit my targets: 1 fiction post, 1 poem, and 5 essays.

Links, below:

Tech: The definition of a brogrammer; is Sam Odio a good person?; Airbnb rolls out so many safety features I almost want to use it; Google Image Swirl is shutting down soon; the best netbook out there; reverse image search; cool Apple gestures; CallRoulette; it’s Cupertino on TechCrunch!

Apps: LikeALittle; I had this idea first, OkCupid; I downloaded this app to make my day a bit more funny; I also downloaded Prey too; and Banjo.

Writing: Ai Weiwei and what artists want; how to write faster; leukemia treatment giving people hope; MIT mathematics made easy; new U.S. Poet Laureate; what happened to Obama’s passion?

Sports: Best overview of pitching statistics I’ve ever read; Rucker Park, now depleted;

To-Do: Get out of your Verizon account without paying an early termination fee.
