I launched it in my Philly apartment this evening and got the following results:

I didn’t need an app to tell me I can go to a gas station to escape humanity for awhile. Also, pretty sure nobody uses Foursquare. Maybe they use Instagram though.

Introspective to a Fault

Heard a really really good conversation about the “hidden value” of introverts on WHYY’s Radio Times. The guest was Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.

It made me feel a little less crazy and a lot more organized. Check out the conversation here. Seriously an amazing piece of public radio. Good host, good guest, and great callers.
