People Demanding Their Rights: Past or Present?

Ah, but today's distraction does sound at least kind of relevant to your thesis (if you see it in the context of political (?) protest movements)! (Also, your thesis sounds awesome!)

But yeah, tell me about being distracted by the internet... Happens to me all the time. If someone finds a good way to stop getting distracted so much, please let me know! :-)

I can pretend like it is relevant to my dissertation, but I can make almost anything into political protest if I squint at it just right ;)

I use a Firefox browser extension called Leechblock to help with the regular distractions. It will only let me access sites that I've told it, like LJ and Facebook, for 30 minutes out of every 3 hours of my "work day" after which it shuts them down. That helps a lot, but not when I get going on something not on one of my usual distraction sites like I did today.
