When I was working in tech, I learned how companies compel users to buy faster and spend more time online — using techniques like related articles, suggested videos, “x items in stock,” and more. I knew these techniques worked, and I started to feel they were working on me.
So, for the past five years, I’ve been creating an ad blocker list that blocks these distractions. I find it helps me feel calmer and spend less time on the web. Right now it’s tailored for me, but I’m releasing it to see if it might help others too. It should work with AdBlock, AdBlock Plus, and uBlock Origin.
