The last few days there seems to have been quite a few post, or more than normal, about being distracted and how in many ways staying focused is simply figuring out how to keep the internet at bay. This can include only checking email in Outlook, catching up on blogs weekly versus by the minute/hour/day, or even self-reflection about the point of posting on social networks. With the imminent death of Google Reader, maybe not replacing Google Reader is a good idea. It would solve many issues resulting from keeping an open web browser and getting distracted. Also, it would temper our need for constant updates and allow us to realize what is and isn't necessary (I am sure LH would stay relevant).
