I'm looking for advice on some best practices when it comes to and particularly reading technical

I usually jump in with a lot of energy and then kind of lose interest and the will to continue after a couple of days and later on feel bad about it.

I'm wondering about buying an e-book reader. I start reading books on my computer but always struggle to finish them, because I get distracted easily. Is Kindle a good piece of hardware?

Don't know how to code but still want to contribute to open projects? Consider open street maps!

OSM is the community built map of the world. Anyone can edit the map and all the data is freely available and usable in any of your projects.

Start in your own neighborhood. Maybe your street is missing or named wrong. Update the corner shop hours. Map the parks or sidewalks. Anything helps and many hands make light work!
