Refracted Input

Clare O’Farrell’s blog on books, TV, films, Michel Foucault, universities etc. etc.

I am a big fan of artistic maps, not necessarily applied to actual geographical areas. Perhaps we could call these heterotopian maps. This lovely map which has recently been doing the rounds on twitter and facebook was designed by Gemma Correll for Evernote.

Update 5 April 2019
A couple of really good articles on procrastination.

Charlotte Lieberman, Why You Procrastinate (It Has Nothing to Do With Self-Control), New York Times, March 25, 2019

Zaria Gorvett, The Smart Guide to procrastination, BBC, Capital, 26 March 2019

Ahh, procrastination. If you’re the kind of person who stays up all night researching niche phenomena – like, say, why some farmers used to make their chickens wear spectacles – whenever you have a deadline looming, or who, like Mozart, will work on anything but the most urgent tasks to create the illusion of productivity, then you may be in need of help.

Yes, I am definitely in need of help. Other distractions of choice for me include researching interesting gadgets or looking at homewares of various kinds.
