Unfortunately, I just got word that Steve Pavlina will not allow his posts to be included in the Adventures in Polyphasic Sleeping feed (transcript below)

Steve’s posts on polyphasic sleep are the most detailed out here on the interwebs, and it would have been epic to have them in the feed. No hard feelings Steve, I still love your blog.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the reply. I respect your decision to not have your feed republished anywhere else. If you happen to change your mind, please let me know. For now, I’ll just continue to link to your site.

Hi Jorel,

Interesting idea, but my PS experiment was a couple years ago, so I’m not
currently writing about it. I wouldn’t want my RSS feed republished on
another site anyway, since that can dilute search rankings.

Take care, and best of luck to you.

– Steve
