This little tool tells me how much time I’ll spend reading an article

October 9, 2018  in 

Often tasks in my GipsyBot list are articles others tell me I should read. I trust the judgement of those who send me articles and have the best intention of reading the referred links.

But it’s not always obvious how much this specific task will take me

I want to pre-build this feature into GipsyBot but until we do, I found an easy way to do this.

I installed this Chrome Extension that’s unobtrusive tool that shows reading time in the upper left corner . Here’s an example from a Harvard article my co-founder sent



And now when I add a task to my list I know exactly how much time I will spend on it



I found this useful on long google docs I have to review as well 🙂
