I didn’t make it very far through this video but I got further than I though I would. There is something nice about watching the world come towards you and pass by.
I didn’t learn to drive until I was 24 and got my first car at 49 so I’ve spent a fair bit of time as a passenger. This is quite reminiscent of that. The track, like the road markings at night focus and slightly hypnotise your attention.
I am finding the recycled dailies from @livedtime a very nice thing. Often I read these in the morning but don’t follow through, it is good to get another chance. They are also the kind of exercise that can take a bit of repetition.
Starting by listening to the video in one window while doing something else in another with 30 odd tabs open was probably not the best start:-)
I never did get to one tab. I did pay a wee bit more attention to how many tabs I have open and why.
Some tabs are open because I’ll come back to them.
Some tabs I have open because I want to collect a bunch of links and I have a script for that.
Sometime (quite a lot) I have more than one tab open because I am copying something, like the code for the tweetÂ above into a post.
I am logged into a service I know I’ll need later on. I am actioning the mail in one tab in another. I need to read both.
I don’t think I’ll be giving up my tabs too soon, but I found thinking about it interesting.
Command-Shift-\ is a useful safari shortcut:
