A lot of my brain lives in the cloud. Here are some random observations on that.
e.g. a lot of my executive function is simply outsourced to Beeminder, with a variety of data sources feeding it so that it mostly passively integrates with my life.
Tagtime is amusing. Sometimes it forces me to read for two hours to score the 0.4 stochastic hours I need to complete my goal. Sometimes (like right now) I get 1.2 stochastic hours on three different goals (business, email and todoist) for writing a ten minute email.
I'm in the process of shutting down the part of my exobrain that forces me to post here regularly. I will probably keep posting here irregularly, but it's currently of unclear benefit for me given my current normal-blogging rate.
Interesting exobrain thing I'm currently doing: A weird experiment for beeminding caffeine.
Historically complex experiments like this don't really work for me and I'm not entirely sure why. This one plays to a fairly established "streak" effect though so I've some degree of hope.
A surprising amount of my exobrain lives in email. It basically functions as my external memory for a lot of things.
Between that and calendar it's distressing how much of mind lives in Google.
