Going On My Information Diet

I am busily unsubscribing from all of my (quite substantial list of) podcasts. I will not be listening to any of those on my daily commutes any more. I am ring-fencing those hours for MA time. It is five hours of uninterrupted attention every week and undoubtedly will become essential. Hacking all of the distractions out of my content stream is another step in managing my attention. One unanticipated positive impact of the MA Programme shall be that I am going to have to break all of my media-diet habits. I hope to rationalise and manage what content I allow back into my time and attention when (and if) I revisit those next year when the Masters is complete.
