Has anyone experimented with ultraworking? I tried it yesterday at an event and it worked insanely well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGBYycCWOD0
I wrote about MK Ultra, a collaboration between filmmaker Adam Curtis and choreographer Rosie Kay about conspiracy theories and mind control. http://bit.ly/2K24Yce
Thinking about this idea of explicitly splitting exploratory and focus phases, and whether I need to give myself a deadline to commit to a single project sometime soon https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/e2heLEnbeqTHaJqBf/when-to-focus-and-when-to-re-evaluate

I have resolved to see and reflect upon all 24 hours of Christian Marclay's montage The Clock. Here's my first thoughts, on a half-hour of the afternoon: http://bit.ly/theclockpart1
Christian Marclay's The Clock, a twenty-four hour film cut together in a montage from other films whose action takes place in the current minute of the day, is a bit of a magnum opus. I've watched 13:55-14:30, 15:30-16:30, and around 23:45-1am so far. It's back on in London until January so I may have to write about it. Exciting, provocative, interesting.
Finally got round to reading that long piece on the Air France disaster, tangentially about automation, which is well-worth it if you've been putting it off due to its length... https://www.vanityfair.com/news/business/2014/10/air-france-flight-447-crash
