Michael Chabon: Two hours later, I’m still on the Internet.

Mother Jones: [Laughs] It’s called procrastination. 

Michael Chabon: It’s more insidious. Procrastination is something you do to yourself. You know: “I gotta sharpen these 20 pencils before I start.” The pencils aren’t calling you and alluring you and inviting you and offering you anything. They’re just sitting there. The internet is actively trying to get you to stop working!

FJP: “The Internet is actively trying to get you to stop working.” No truer words we’ve heard all week.
