Hey, It’s Alter Ego

I’d like to see my posts at the polyphasic news feed. We, bloggers, need to get the information about the polyphasic sleeping out there as best as we can. There are so many people who even doesn’t know what “REM sleep” means. This is what I’m trying to do with my blog. Providing information about it. I mostly try to provide information rather than telling what I do.

Thanks…

This is day 7 of my first polyphasic sleep experiment. I’m blogging
about it at http://grizzlyboom.blogspot.com

I’d like to be added to the feed and wiki.

By the way, in my post
http://grizzlyboom.blogspot.com/2010/06/light-anomie-brainfart-on-polyphasic.html
I throw around the idea of creating a karma-based, collaborative
LessWrong-style polyphasic community site with a “bug” database for
easily pinpointing problem spots.

If I set it up, do you think polyphasers would be interested in it?

Zzz Spotlight: Sarah McCulloch

I just got word from another polyphasic blogger that would like to contribute to the Adventures in Polyphasic Sleeping news feed (see correspondence below).

This is Sarah’s second time transitioning to polyphasic sleep. She was previously on an Uberman schedule for 8 months in 2009. Check out the blog here:

Hello there,

I just found the polyphasic sleep wiki that you set up, which looks rather win. I have a personal blog at http://www.sarahmcculloch.com/blog/ where I have a category on my experiences with polyphasic sleeping here: http://www.sarahmcculloch.com/blog/category/polyphasic/

According to TryPolyphasic’s map, I’m the only polyphasic sleeper in Manchester, UK, which is unfortunate in a city of 2 million people, though 5 of my friends have tried and failed to go polyphasic. It would be cool if you could add me to your feed and the wiki. :)

Yours,

Sarah McCulloch

Seeing Pi Chart

Happy Pi Day! Last year, I created an ascii pi to celebrate. This year, I present the Seeing Pi Chart.

Learn the first 61 digits of pi whilst improving your eyesight!

Like all my original work, the Seeing Pi Chart has been set free from any copyrights.

In case anyone wants to play with the image, here’s the Illustrator project file.

http://ia700209.us.archive.org/14/items/SeeingPiChart/seeing_pi_chart.ai

It was based on this Snellen chart.
