“Is email a distraction? SelfControl is an OS X application which blocks access to incoming and/or outgoing mail servers and websites for a predetermined period of time.

For example, you could block access to your email, facebook, and twitter for 90 minutes, but still have access to the rest of the web. Once started, it can not be undone by the application, by deleting the application, or by restarting the computer — you must wait for the timer to run out.

Created while at Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology. Thanks to Charlie Stigler for developing the application.

SelfControl is Free Software under the GPL. Feel free to make improvements, linux ports, etc. The sourcecode and wiki are on Github, and there is a ticket system too.”
