Blocks distracting sites, granting access only if a trivia question is answered correctly.
Mind Matter is an educational Chrome extension that blocks blacklisted pages, granting access only if a trivia question is answered correctly. It aims to deter excessive usage of distracting websites and to help users learn or reinforce their knowledge about academic subjects.
This software is for people who struggle to stay focused on their work, and are also curious for learning.
Please note that this is release is mostly demonstrational. Future features are described on Github issues. I also need help with writing more questions!
The psychologist Daniel Kahneman describes two systems of thinking. "'System 1' is fast, instinctive, and emotional; 'System 2' is slower, more deliberative, and more logical." (Wikipedia)
Surfing the Internet tends to be unproductive. The objective of Mind Matter is to disrupt cognitive ease and force users to perform system 2 thinking.
This project is both ad-free and open-source.
