An example that comes close to my use case is this. I'm in a bookshop and have bought a copy of NY Times and the WSJ. I then see an interesting article on page 13 of the Chicago Tribune. I pick up a copy and read the article and put it back. Did I steal from Chicago Tribune? Maybe. Is there a way I can compensate them for this? I'm not sure of a good way to do this. Bypass Paywalls fills a similar gap in my use case when I run into articles I don't have subscriptions for. I endorse supporting blogs/newsletters/news sites if one gets significant value from them. 

Great recommendations! Some additions I've found helpful. 

App and Extensions:

  • Matter - a powerful, elegant read-it-later app that pulls in your newsletters, lets you listen to your articles in a natural voice, and much more. Highly recommend. 
  • uBlock Origin - free, open-source ad content blocker. 
  • - annotate, highlight, and tag web pages and PDF documents.
  • Bypass Paywalls - bypass paywalls for a good number of news sites.
  • Introvert - avoid distractions on your phone. For a select period of time, the app blocks your entire screen while generating a unique artwork. I also find the audio calming and use it as a meditation timer but you have the option to mute it. It's the most helpful app on my phone. 


  • Kap - make quick gifs to showcase something. Only on Mac, recommendations for a Windows alternative would be really appreciated. 
  • Self-Control - block your own access to distracting websites, your mail servers, or anything else on the Internet. You will be unable to access those sites - even if you restart your computer or delete the application
  • Microsoft Edge - Switched after the recommendation by Dustin.  In addition to the features mentioned in his comment, the Immersive Reader feature works really well for listening to articles. 

13. When googling a recipe, precede it with ‘best’. You’ll find better recipes. 

Cooking tip from Twitter to complement this: "Use Google image search for recipe searching! Quality of the photography seems to be a good indicator of the quality of a recipe, maybe because it speaks to attention to detail?"
