Another week without cellular data!

A few weeks ago I ended up turning off cellular data again to try to improve my productivity and increase my attention span. I began on a Tuesday I think but kept forgetting to blog about it until today. Here are my thoughts from during the experiment, edited for coherence.

This time, I've included a random selection of HDR images I've taken of varying quality :P


Read more of Idiot Brain
Finished the Verge article on the secret history of the iPhone.

Sovereign Hill, Ballarat


Read this fascinating article on the history of pockets.

Haven't been able to stay off mobile data completely, need to check timetables and communicate. But at least I have been staying off Facebook and Reddit more. Makes me more mindful of it.

Hanging Rock, Victoria 


Mid-Thursday I ran out of data! Have stay off mobile data now because it doesn't work.

Thursday afternoon I read a long article on the underground music piracy scene in the 1990's. 

Smeaton, Victoria 


Friday morning I read an article on the nervous system, immune system and inflammation.

During the day I went through my phone and deleted old SMSes.

New Zealand.... 

The Weekend

Saturday I was at a friend's place so was occupied.

Sunday didn't need data as I was on wifi. Then I went out and met a friend, didn't need data as I was with company and could coordinate over SMS.

Rotorua, New Zealand

Monday and Tuesday

I didn't write it down, but I remember running out of cellular data on my plan so that forced me not be tempted. I don't remember what I read, maybe just more of The Idiot Brain.

Wednesday I bought more credit so the experiment is over.
