Online Clock

Hi John,

Thank you so much for mentioning Online Clock in your article about the Pomodoro technique!

As you can imagine, we've been using this simple but effective time management technique for years and we can tell you that it does work. You simply get much more accomplished by dividing your work into smaller tasks and then allotting a short span of time for getting each one done in turn.

But it's only recently that this idea has become trendy and known as "Pomodoro".

Still, it's a great concept that'll probably help a lot of people...especially net workers like us, who can sometimes get easily distracted by everything else the web has to offer (and I'm not mentioning YouTube by name here ;-) )

Thanks again,


Chris in NF

I've been using this technique for a few months now, and I find it works pretty well. I don't have a pomodoro, however, as the only timer they had for sale at Stokes is pig-shaped. So I guess I use the maiale technique.


There is a very simple timer for pomodoro too.
