Warning signs

I have a problem: I can focus intently on reading for hours, but the subject matter tends to get more esoteric as I go. All sorts of tangentially related articles become fascinating, and then suddenly I find myself lost: only a few mouseclicks away from my original topic, but miles away from what I need to focus on.

Today’s warning signs: when you follow business strategy articles from one reference to the next, and they start citing articles by Raymond Kurzweil and Freeman Dyson, you have left the realm you were meant to be exploring.

It’s the fascinating thing about researching internet use. Ten years ago, most of the things I’m looking at were science fiction.
