    https://www.lowtechmagazine.com/ It's always astounding how much you don't know. And how little you are dependent on computers, if you need to be.

      Some LTM articles review old "obsolete" technology, and I always find it fascinating to see the ingenuity of these devices and solutions. Many of them would still be very useful today, so they make great examples in discussions about whether newer and more "modern" is always better.

    aeon - I like their articles that challenge conventional 'truths'. "Since 2012, Aeon has established itself as a unique digital magazine, publishing some of the most profound and provocative thinking on the web. We ask the big questions and find the freshest, most original answers, provided by leading thinkers on science, philosophy, society and the arts."

    Farnam Street - I'm subscribed to their newsletter. Optimize your thinking would be the tagline I'd give. In their own words: "..packed with timeless insights and robust principles from a wide range of disciplines. Our aim is to help you think better, perform better, and live a better life."

      I also like Aeon, their article on "Vice dressed as virtue" was how I found out about it. New to Farnam Street, but I'll check it out!

      Riot games have a technical blog with pretty good content about managing things at their massive scale.

    Online publications? Easy: Gunnerkrigg Court, XKCD, and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. I'm a man of simple tastes. I will admit that I sometimes feel like taking a dip in insanity, and that's...

    I'm a man of simple tastes.

    I will admit that I sometimes feel like taking a dip in insanity, and that's when I look to see what Dresden Codak is doing. Boy is that series not worth reading live.
