It’s difficult for me to stay consistent with blogs that I read – especially so if they’re constantly being updated. Over the years, there’s been a constant churn in what I look at on the daily, with one exception. brainpickings.org, the brainchild of Maria Popova, consistently surprises and humbles me. Ms. Popova personally reads (at least) 100 books a year and then distills and contextualizes their messages with a warmth and passion that often feels lost in the sciences. If you’re interested in science, design, history, philosophy, and more, I would highly recommend giving it a glance.
