Being more productive with Coffitivity

Added on by Scott Cline.

When I was writing my dissertation, I found I was most productive in turning out words during cross-country flights.[1] I also spent a great deal of time in a few coffee shops writing as well.

Coffitivity, a new website brings the sound of a coffee shop to anywhere. I doubt anyone will create this type of site that recreates airplane noise though.[2]

I have been using it as background noise in my office. Unscientifically, it sure does beat relative silence.

  1. I probably should have put a thank you in my dedication to Virgin America, but since I (or work) was paying for the flights, I think it is ok.  ↩

  2. Might try combining Coffitivity with my next flight to see if there is a multiplier effect.  ↩
