~gwern The Website of Gwern Branwen - this is a fascinatingly complex personal site/wiki, with extensive writing on a variety of topics. Worth it just for looking at the beautiful web/graphic design. Also a great example of a minimalist and fast site that still has all kinds of interface niceties like link previews and drop capitals. personal, blog, design, tech, hackers, journal, web, culture Added by reed

the textfile directory A collection of plain-text files, primarily from the mid-1980s, when person-to-person-via-computer communication happened almost exclusively in plain text. Think of these as the original memes, before computers were good at sending and displaying graphics. See the Top 100 to get a sense of what kind of material is here. retrocomputers, culture, literature, tech, computers, hackers Added by reed
