Yeah I know what you mean. The anticipation of the response can destroy your concentration.

Which means I almost never respond to anything on my phone, which I think is a big productivity illusion.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
