Independent creators, the publications that host them, and the things that they make from around the web that deserve your attention. Exists as much for my own personal reference as anything else.
Personal Blogs & Web Revival
- Bob Doto - An anarcho-Marxist, folk-christian and Zettelkasten practitioner.
- Muris - Imaginative illustrations with a bit of photography and writing thrown in for good measure.
- Nicky's Blog - A brutally honest online journal of sorts. Intrigued to see how it develops
- NoHappyNonsense - Creator of the Weirdly Wordy & Ear Rat Magazine. Maybe the second coolest Mike on the web.
- Offline Magazine - Shortform essays with some herbal tea recipes
- Owl's Roost - So much interesting stuff here, including fiction, resources, links, articles, bloglets and tech fixes. One of those sites you can just get lost in
- Pastel Shoal - Hosts photography, films and personal musings. A very minimalist but also very pretty site to look at too.
- random ivysaur - Another Mike (well Michael) with a minimalist site and a distaste for certain aspects of the modern web.
- The Reading Project - One of the most well put together sites on Neocitities. Book reviews mostly, but also check out the blog on the about page.
- The Renaissance Man, Revisited - aka KPH. A site with quite a few things going on (check out the fun recipe folders), but I enjoy the thoughtful essays the best.
- Visakanv's Blog - More of a digital garden than a blog. A messy place, but there's some fascinating thoughts if you go searching for it here
- Volk's Valhalla - I visit for the film and album reviews mostly, but you'll also find art, photography, fanpages and much more.
- Web Weekly - Interviews with various web masters from the small web
Tools & Resources
- Ars Technica - Tech & science news and reviews. But the real good stuff is in their many RSS feeds.
- Electronic Frontier FoundationA nonprofit centered on digital privacy and freedom of speech.
- OpenSource - Blogs, guides and resources on using and developing open source software
- Popula - "an experimental news, arts and culture magazine with a humanistic, global focus."
- Simple html - Basic html explained. But really I'm adding it here because I love the aesthetic
From The Tube
- Atrocity Guide - There's a lot of "creepy story" type channels on YouTube, but this is by and far the best one out there.
- Dan Bell - Videos on Dead Malls, abandoned buildings and dirty hotels. It's better than it sounds.
- MichaelMJD - Reviews on old or obscure tech and software.
- Network Chuck - The best teachers are those who are enthusiastic about their subjects. And Network Chuck is certainly that.
