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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A lot of my brain lives in the cloud. Here are some random observations on that.
