Sleep is for the Weak

Description

For the past 671 days, I’ve awakened 1-4 times a night, every night. This is the story of how I manage this sleep deprivation and focus my attention and energy, becoming a more organized, more efficient designer than I was 6 months ago, all with the help of information designer Edward Tufte, Real Simple magazine, a renowned sleep researcher from the University of Chicago, and just one cup of coffee per day.

Biography

My name is Abi Jones.
I’m trying to make the world a better place.

How? By designing ways for people to interact with Google’s Knowledge Graph, a semantic network of over 570 million objects (& 18 billion related facts) representing the continually growing realm of human knowledge.

When I’m not designing interfaces for the computable portions of human knowledge, I write the webcomic Dear Future and bicycle along the beaches of Santa Cruz, California.
