Hey guys, just making this post because I'm interested to see both what peoples interests are, and where they go to satiate them! :melon: :omg:

A few of my favourite websites to read are
Scientific American (https://www.scientificamerican.com/#),
Quanta Magazine (https://www.quantamagazine.org),
Hacker News (https://news.ycombinator.com/), and just good old surfing the
Internet Archive (https://archive.org/)

Some websites with cultural commentary and humanities would be cool too but I'm curious about whatever

Anyway, have a good day :-)

L-O-V-E Hacker News (maybe a bit too much - discussion for another time) but since you already brought it up, I'll just mention a useful resource for people that maybe aren't as familiar with HN:

Hacker News RSS
https://hnrss.github.i:ha:

Just plug in your favorite topics into the Search Feed types, and you're free from having to check in regularly due to "FOMO" or whatever. RSS in general is glorious :loved:, and I feel falls under the umbrella of this topic / discussion.

Oh! Also forgot to mention:

Hacker News - Algolia Search
https://hn.algolia.com/

So if you come across an old topic (but it's new to you), you can just go spelunking and brush yourself up on it.

Honestly, most of the reading I do is on random blogs I find on people's sites...
This is by far the best one I've seen so far, I want to start some sort of comedic blog in the vein of this, whenever I get around to remodeling my website.

I don't actually read much, in all honesty.

Occasionally, I peruse several online resources that provide in-depth and insightful articles across various fields(They range from philosophy to movies and arts). While I don't have a regular reading routine, I find these sources to be highly valuable. Some of the websites I frequently visit are received on my "reading" email through an RSS feed once a week. I don't know if my system is unusual, but I read way more this way.

    Longreads: a website featuring thought-provoking essays on culture, politics, and science.

    Aeon: a digital magazine publishing articles on philosophy, science, and society. I'm reading more publications like this.

    Brain Pickings: offers insightful and thought-provoking articles on a range of topics, including literature, science, and art.

    Nautilus: a science magazine that explores the intersections between science, philosophy, and culture.
    The Paris Review: a literary magazine that features fiction, poetry, and interviews with prominent writers. I used to read these two more in the past.

    Farnam Street: a website that offers articles on decision-making, cognitive biases, and learning. Sometimes they have really great podcasts.

    Wait But Why: a website that provides long-form articles on topics such as technology, science, and philosophy, often presented with humorous and whimsical illustrations. I'm not really visiting this website that much nowadays, but it was fun in the beginning.

    The Creative Independent: a website that offers articles and interviews related to creativity and the arts.

    Julian Shapiro: Julian writes on topics such as technology, entrepreneurship, psychology, and writing. By drawing from his own experiences, Julian offers actionable advice and insights on complex topics in a clear and digestible manner.  He has a certain precision and eloquence in writing, displaying a fluid style that effectively conveys his ideas. I'm searching for more similar websites or blogs.
