Digital Minimalism Update

In February and March I wrote two posts on my efforts to minimize the digital distractions in my life, Digital Minimalism and Digital Minimalism Revisited. I'd just finished the book by Cal Newport of the same name and was inspired to cut out the mindless distractions of my life. Since then, I've continued to stay... Continue Reading →
