A work-in-progress list of websites and blogs I read and take inspiration from. Yes, it’s the good old blogroll.


Design, tech

  • Minutes to Midnight— Moniker of Simone Silvestroni, a digital polymath between sound and web design. He creates and produces music and audio across multiple media and make websites using Jekyll or WordPress.

He's also a professional bass player, a composer and a field recordist.

  • – A queer Korean American woman of average height in New York City. Like us, she is also a denizen of the internet. Rachel Kwon is a product leader, writer, and a surgeon by training.


  • Neurologica— Steven Novella covers news and issues in neuroscience, but also general science, scientific skepticism, philosophy of science, critical thinking, and the intersection of science with the media and society.
