So a lot of websites have started using a pinterest-style grid layout, where there are multiple columns, each with a long list of headlines, all screaming for attention at the same time. It kind of drives me crazy. So I made a chrome extension to always display the mobile version of a page. Most of these sites actually look really nice on a phone. There’s just a single column of content, which is easy to scroll through without losing your sanity. But it can be unpleasant to read everything on a phone. So my extension displays the pages as if they’re on a mobile device, on your normal screen.

So my friend Choed showed me a technique for making big decisions called a decision matrix. The idea is that is that you list the possible outcomes of a decision and the factors that would influence your choice, and then calculate a score for each outcome. The full rules are here: leanhrblog.com/weighted-decision-matrix/ As someone who’s kind of indecisive, I thought this was pretty useful. As someone who’s a huge procrastinator, I thought I should make an online app to automate the process before making my decisions 🙂 The result is here: jonathankoomjian.com/projects/DecisionMatrix/.
The work in progress is always saved. Each decision matrix page is assigned a unique url. Remember that url. When you load that url, your work will appear, just as you last left it.
