Check out this article on ProfHacker about the “McDonald’s theory” approach to writing. It’s not earth-shattering, but it reinforces that we should avoid self-editing during the first draft writing process because even if the words are terrible, they’ll be useful as a counterpoint later on in the revision process. This is actually kind of different from what Ryan’s doing, which seems closer to researching (or writing) in public. Again, both are great ways to approach writing–it’s all about what works for you.
