Keeping a Separate Creativity Computer

I really resonated with Josh Ginter's self-reflection: […] there’s some sort of psychological barrier to opening the MacBook Pro lid when it’s time to create. I have a complicated script to help me enter different "modes", but nothing is as effective as another place on another device. There are other kinds of triggers: I only listen to certain music while doing certain tasks, I go to certain places to handle certain work… whatever works for you. I've had some success with different keyboards. If I had infinite resources I would have two working desks: one for shallow, and one locked down computer for deep work. As it stands, I’m grateful for the mental block between my MacBook Pro and the creative work I need to complete. It provides some separation between office-work and side-gig-work. It provides a transition from office to home. And, in a way, it provides the opportunity to have some sort of shutdown period each day. Another great point. I remember hearing CGP Grey saying that in confined spaces he would move his laptop to a different place on the desk, just to have something slightly different to jog his brain. Great post, and lovely pictures as always. Keeping a Separate Creativity Computer -



Syndicated Copies

Add URLs of POSSEd copies!

<a rel="syndication" class="u-syndication" href="…">…</a>


  • links
  • focus

Your h-entries should have, at minimum, the following properties:

  • e-content — the main content of the post
  • p-name — if your post is an article with a name, use this classname.
  • dt-published — the datetime the post was published at, in ISO8601 format, with a timezone
  • u-url — the canonical URL of the post, especially important on pages listing multiple posts

It’s a common convention for the published datetime to be a link to the post itself, but they can be separate if you want.

There should also be some way to discover the author of the post — either link to your homepage (which should have your h-card on it) from anywhere within the body of the page with rel=author, or optionally embed a p-author h-card in the h-entry.

The web is an expressive medium, and as such there are many other properties which you can add to your posts. Check out the h-entry documentation for a full list.
