  1. Regular internet detox tips?

    Over the past few years I’ve heard a few friends talk about plans to get off the internet for one day a weekend, one weekend a month, etc. Each of the past two years I’ve tried to take 3-4 days off the internet, and both times it has been rejuvenating- I come back feeling pretty…

  2. looking for a programming analogy- if there is one

    As I’ve mentioned before, there are a lot of analogies between programming and legal work. I’m working on an upcoming post to explain a specific application of a legal concept.
