SamAI you have nailed it, Quincy is definitely one of the most “addictive article” writers on medium, while I don’t recommend doing this, the best way to ‘hack’ time is stop reading his articles, he is just too good to avoid with skimming off the first couple of lines.
On a more serious note though and before I get fired from the team, here is a quick tip, I like using a tool like feedly, I almost never go out of the context. It gives me a gist of stuff, that interest me.
If I am very much interested on something, I go ahead and read it on its actual page.
Also I like doing that when my code is compiling,(one of the perks of working in C++, you have a quite few minutes to kill on something interesting).
