Five-minute warning

I use this Ukraine-made hourglass calibrated to five minutes to time participants in open mic events.

It’s inspired by Merrimack Mic, where I found it very helpful during poetry readings. Writers, including this one, are tempted to go beyond their allotted time.

It’s good to keep it in the corner of my eye when performing, as I also do when I’m hosting.

On a real desktop, too.
