How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
I want this for the Kindle app on my phone. It would make the small screen size irrelevant.

Finally some free time, but not enough
It’s more than an hour past bed, and I want to do anything but. I feel wild, and creative, and capable, and inspired, but I know that doing anything would just be causing the wake-up tomorrow to be that much more physically painful. God fucking damn it.
I worked 6 days this week, during a week when most people work 4. FML.

lather the cat (1976)
Shared because I thought my week was going badly. But it’s always nice to see a creature having a worse time of it.
