Microdosing and Psychedelics


I was talking a colleague about Michael Pollan’s “How to Change Your Mind” and how many Bay Area software developers are “microdosing” LSD and psilocybin to help increase their productivity.

He quipped:

Isn’t that the most Bay Area thing ever? Discover an ego-dissolving, God-revealing chemical and then, instead of getting up and going outside to become one with nature or relate genuinely with your fellow man they ask: “But how can this make me work better?”
