WORLD. I need to update my sleep-schedule.
I have a plan. It's a bit nuts. But it'll work! I know it will.
I don't suppose many of you have heard me say this, but I think "I need more time" is a bad reason to transition to polyphasic sleep, at least in isolation. However, I'm going to step on my own toes here and say straight out that that's why *I* need to make this change — not, I hastily add, a change to being polyphasic, but a fairly major change in my longtime polyphasic schedule, that involves moving closer to Uberman than I've been in many years.
I'll be testing out a strict new schedule in a tricky environment that includes limited space and full-time work, with the intention of transitioning gradually, staying with it long enough to document what ought to be documented, and then if all goes well, I want to push even further in or around Fall and transition to a ::cough:: new kind of Uberman I sort of came up with recently. (Only people helping me out with this transition get to know about that, at least at first. There has to be some compensation for how much they're going to hear me whine!)
But let's not get distracted! This post is to put a call out: Do you want to transition with me? I need a few people who'd like to stay in touch regularly via email, twitter, hangouts, IRC, telepathy, hired mercenaries, etc. for probably a few weeks. We can help each other out, keep each other awake and honest, assist in data-gathering and troubleshooting, and since I'll have your ear for a while, you can help me brainstorm some of the new sleep-related stuff I'm doing (which maaaay be the reason I suddenly need a few more hours a day ;).
Contact me if you're interested, and let me know some stuff about you, and why you'd like to buddy up. Flattery and weirdness will go far, and I don't care what schedule(s) you're on or moving to, but there are some restrictions: You must be over 18; you must not set off my internal Shithead-o-meter; and you must have either experience with polyphasic sleep, or a good amount of reading under your belt: I'm all about training newbies, but not when I myself am also adapting; for this I need at least slightly experienced support.
Please feel free to repost this; I'll try to get off my butt (errr or on it?) and spread it around a little too. I'm hoping to start by mid-July, though there's still some prep to do, so for the right person(s) or circumstances, I could be convinced to wait a little longer.
