Atoms in the Void is an occasional roundup of links and blurbs.

Pretend you’re on an airplane to get more done. If you use an iPhone or other smartphone, “Airplane Mode” is a great way to keep your phone from controlling your attention. This article from Marc Cortez discusses Airplane Mode and other tips.

Go from unnoticed to published in your field. Cal Newport’s brilliant article turns the vague and ominous world of research into a churning process that will help you achieve mastery.

The most popular philosophy blogs among readers of Leiter Reports. Winners include The Philosophy Smoker, which you should really check out.

Philosopher’s Carnival #127 was posted a while back. PC is a roundup of high-quality blog posts in philosophy, organized by topic.

    Thanks for linking to the post about intentional action on my new blog. I note that you play the drums – me too. I’m going to see drum virtuoso Steve Smith perform at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s in London next week. Check him out, if you don’t know him already: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-TzBGd6O80. Might not be your bag musically, but you’ve got to recognise his skills. Ditto for guitarist Frank Gambale, “The Thunder From Down Under” as he’s sometimes daftly called.
