Links, Week 11: In transit

Writing: 20 hours, 40 minutes
Distracted: 8 hours, 25 minutes
Gmail: 8 hours, 8 minutes
Neutral: 3 hours, 46 minutes

This week, I returned from Los Angeles and flew to Manila. I spent 18 hours on planes, and 6 hours in airport terminals. I downloaded Gmail offline, and soon, I will never have to worry about old email again. This week should be extremely productive.

By the way, do you like the picture? It was going to be a link, but I decided to give it some prime real estate. I'm not sure how I feel about adulterating my site with non-original content, but maybe this is fine, if it's once a week?

Here are some links.
