Here’s his first post on polyphasic sleep when he was actually on it. All of his posts on polyphasic sleep, along with mine, should be showing up in the Adventures in Polyphasic Sleeping feed shortly.

Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks!
interesting project. Yes, I will be delighted to join your feed. I stopped PS a while ago, but I planned to switch back now that I have a new job.
