Recommendations from Kottke’s recommendations
Blogger Jason Kottke recently announced he’d be taking a sabbatical, and in his farewell post recommended thirty-two “sites and newsletters to keep you busy while I’m gone.” On a whim, I decided I’d subscribe to every recommendation with an RSS feed and see how many stuck. After two weeks of pruning, these are the additions that remain:
- Craig Mod (feed): Writing, photography, walking, and Japan.
- The Honest Broker (feed): Music and the music industry.
- Colossal (feed): Features on specific artists and their works. The most visually arresting site of the bunch.
- Open Culture (feed): Educational videos on a variety of topics.
- The Kid Should See This (feed): Also educational videos, but with the vibe of a great children’s museum.
- Present & Correct (feed): Neat photos of neat objects, for your inner industrial designer.
- Austin Kleon (feed): Art, creativity, and inspiration. Reminiscent of his book Steal Like an Artist.
- The Whippet (feed): Charming and wide-ranging newsletter about all kinds of things.
Maybe you’ll find something in there you like! (If not, you can head back to Kottke’s post and check out the full list in one of the postscripts towards the bottom.)
