Beyond books, I spend a fair amount of time reading online, mostly blogs. Blogs fill the space between books, they're not as minute-by-minute as news is, and they're not quite a book. Generally the ideas on blogs are forever updating, in some ways they beat books.
Reading books and blogs is my way of seeking out new ways to see reality, I'm particularly interested in how people think and how technology businesses work. Through my travels, I've put together a pretty good reading list that I think are some of the better reads online. This list will likely shrink and grow with time.
- Ben Thompson's Stratechery is the best place to understand what is happening in technology;
- Shane Parrish's Farnam Street will help you make better decisions and think clearer;
- Graham Duncan runs a $2bn fund, but his thoughts about people are more valuable;
Tim Ferriss talks to interesting people;
- Collaborative Fund makes you question what you believe in;
- Bill Gates has some of the best reading recommendations;
- Nautilus is focuses on one topic each month, brilliant;
- The Information is the only tech news I read;
- Seth Godin gives you more to think about in less words;
- The New York Times has some of the best stories I've read;
- Bill Bishop gives you the presidential daily brief on China;
- Ribbon Farm is fascinating;
- Wait but Why makes me wish I was more patient when I write;
- The Economist is great once a week;
- The Morning Paper is a great way to learn more computer science; and
- Cal Newport is the only productivity advice you really need.
