At a glance

Welcome to the new friends of the Mental Models, Concepts, and Frameworks newsletter who have joined us since last week!

This Week: 5 of the most useful websites I've found


Sick of paywalls?

Meet 12ft ladder. It lets you bypass any paywall.

The idea is simple: news sites don’t show the Google crawler a paywall so they can appear in search results.

12ft grabs this cached, un-paywalled version of the page and shows you.

10 Minute Mail

If you’re like me, you’re constantly signing up for new services or freebies online that require an email address.

Our inbox pays a hefty price.

Luckily, 10 Minute Mail gives you a free temporary email address so you can avoid this.

Sleepy Time

This happens when you wake up in the middle of a sleep cycle.

SleepyTime tells you what time you need to go to bed to wake up at the end of a sleep cycle so you don’t feel tired when you wake.
