Bookmark Loop Disorder

Web bookmarks remain a popular way to waste time when one should be working. You check a site or two, get something done for a little while, then check your bookmarks again. Careful research, however, has shown that at a certain point the list of bookmarks grows, the „get something done“ period shrinks, until the reader goes directly from the end of the list back to the top, just in case there are new updates. Once entered, this „bookmark loop state“ often cannot be broken until a couple hours after a sane bedtime.

Das läßt sich leicht auch auf Blogs ausweiten: Die „Blog Loop Disorder“-Krankheit wäre also ein kontinuierliches Lesen seiner Newsfeeds, um zu gucken, ob etwas neues für den eigenen Blog dabei ist. Je nach Lesegeschwindigkeit und Zahl der abonnierten Feeds kann das tatsächlich ganze Arbeitstage füllen. 😀 [via Dean Giustini]
