Pocket + Read Ruler

I decided to get organized and stop dropping everything (links, notes, images, ideas) into Evernote (my distributed cognition 2nd brain) so I decided to try Pocket.

I don’t like that I’m locked into Pocket and can only share links with friends through a Pocket url. Super annoying.

With the browser plugin to save articles to Pocket. The thing I found lacking was the absence of a ‘time to read’ estimate.

To provide an estimate for how long an article is going to take to read.

The time to read is key for those limited times throughout the day when I have a few spare minutes to read a short article in my list.

I thought this article was helpful in thinking about how to read all those books in the backlog.
