Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
How do you like my cynical attempt to exploit SEO? Welcome, beliebers!
I can’t remember where I first heard of Coffitivity, but here’s the concept. We all hate noise, and it’s difficult to work (and therefore to be as creative as we can possibly be) when there’s too much of it. But we seem to like a certain moderate level of ambient sound — something like the sound in your neighborhood coffeehouse — and creative people, it turns out, are more creative in that kind of environment. The developers of Coffitivity took the idea (based on actual research) and offer us online coffeehouse background sound that we can work by at home, at the office, or, I guess, anywhere that’s not a coffeehouse.
I tried it earlier this week and didn’t notice any particular bump in my creativity, though I did wind up having too much coffee that day.
Coffitivity can run in the background while your music plays simultaneously, so you can write to coffeehouse ambiance while listening to Justin Bieber’s “Believe.” It’s the best of all possible worlds!
