I'm typing this right now surrounded by the simulated sounds of a packed coffee shop thanks to a website designed for those of us who work from home in silence. Based upon the research finding a balance between "calm and commotion" can aid in creativity and productivity, Coffitivity brings all the sounds of being in a public space without the serious annoyances of being bothered by actual people...
- Direct your lonely ole self to http://coffitivity.com/.
- Moderate ambient noise is proven to boost creativity.
- Get your headphones plugged in, hit the player and start creating. (Note: For best results, set the player volume so your music is just barely louder than Coffitivity.)
