My imagination has been debunked!

In the past 24 hours I've discovered that both of my "million dollar" ideas (for websites/services/apps) are already out there and established.

internet productivity for dummies

I'm trying to install some web-blocking functions on both Internet Explorer and Mozilla, but can't seem to get what I want. I'm blocking IE through restricting the content directly on the Options tabs, and using Leechblock for Mozilla. So talk to me like I'm stupid ... what I want to do, simply, is block all .com domains, except for 2 or 3 specific sites. Why can't I figure out how to do this?

Smart Office Not So Damned Smart?

You know that trend a while back towards 'smart offices'? I think that's what it was called -- you know, when nobody has their own desk, and they just snag their laptop and go sit anywhere and somehow they are magically more creative and productive as a result? I'm having trouble Googling up trip reports: can you help me out with links to stories and research about experiences in implementing it (or your own personal experience)? [more inside]

The over-examined life is no picnic either

I'm in a rut. Professionally and personally, I have long lists of projects that I need or want to get done and have made little to no progress on. I've made lists. I've made plans.

Early to bed, early to rise?

I've never felt like the type, but as I get older I've been wondering - should I be one of those people who gets up early every day and has a few hours to do things before work? Is it unquestionably going to improve my life much more than staying up until 2 AM every day would? I think the morning time would be spent either going to the gym, or lounging around with breakfast and coffee and internet. Curious about who has tried this and decided it was or wasn't worth it to rise early, especially if you didn't think of youself as a morning person.
