Most of these links have been posted recently—some removals as well.
Href.cool is my personal directory to the Web. It contains one hidden directory inside of it—and I’m working on two more (one on ‘antimisanthropy’ and another on ‘fake computers’.) In the meantime, I have some casual updates.
Added to Games/Dialogue:
All the Meeples of the Rainbow Blog 5m
Lavish pics of board game pieces. Full, detailed feelings on new games. I tend to agree with her. Her being Steph Hodge.
Stately Play Blog 5m
This blog sprung from the Pocket Tactics blog—covers mostly mobile board games. (I’m a huge fan of Race for the Galaxy—and the mobile version came from Keldon’s homebrew AI. This blog is on the lookout for games in that vein.)
Removed link to Susan Engel (susan-engel.com) in Real/Learning—DNS doesn’t resolve.
New category Real/Thoughts:
Meaningness Wiki ∞
David Chapman (who also brought us Buddhism for Vampires)—to simply call Meaningness a ‘book’ or a ‘metablog’ or a Buddhist resource is to discount that this is a formidable work that seems to both tackle the question “What is life?” and to catalog its author’s every thought. It also sets a precedent for drafting in public that I’ve begun to see on the other links in Web/Wiki.
Visakan Veerasamy Page ∞
This site goes real deep—you have no idea. But you might get an idea if you survey the bookmarks page (which is an impressive collection—feels similar to href.cool) or the @1000wordvomits page (dump of interesting, meandering essays) or his master list of his own Twitter threads, which is just much better than it sounds. Generous work.
Nadia Eghbal Blog 1h
Started with the brilliant ‘The tyranny of ideas’. Stayed for ‘Reclaiming public life’ and ‘The independent researcher’. Essays to snack on. (See also: The Modern Essay by Virginia Woolf. That’s what Nadia does.)
An addition to Tapes/Classic:
- Radio Soulwax Mixtape 1h
These are pretty popular—but whatever, credit to these Belgians for keeping such an ambitious project on a sheet of matte black hypertext.
An addition to Tapes/Infinite:
- Every Noise at Once Directory 1m
‘…an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 3,295 genres by Spotify as of 2019-08-03. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.’
And an addition to Tapes/Vaporwave:
Bunch of new links under Visuals/Motion:
Removed link to Typegram (tgr.am) in Web/Participate—DNS won’t resolve.
