"Brain Pickings is the brain child of Maria Popova, an interestingness hunter-gatherer and curious mind at large, who also writes for Wired UK and The Atlantic, among others, and is an MIT Futures of Entertainment Fellow. She gets occasional help from a handful of guest contributors.
Brain Pickings is your LEGO treasure chest, full of pieces across art, design, science, technology, philosophy, history, politics, psychology, sociology, ecology, anthropology, you-name-itology. Pieces that enrich your mental pool of resources and empower you to combine them into original concepts that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful. Please enjoy." from the source http:brainpicking.org
NOTE: This blog looks to be a great resource for in depth articles about the topics listed in the second paragraph above. A good resource for topics for discussion with students or colleagues. Already I have posted one about Vannevar Bush. I am sure there will be more to come.
