The Codeless Code An independently created collection of koans, related to but distinct from The Rootless Root. These are illustrated, and occasionally violent, in a "Kill Bill" kind of way. Mostly covering "The Art and Philosophy of Software Development" tech, pedagogy Added by reed

The Rootless Root The Unix Koans of Master Foo. These are written in the style of Zen Koans, but relate to Unix precepts. From the webpage of Eric S. Raymond, co-founder of the Open Source Initiative. unix, tech, hackers, pedagogy Added by reed

Ian MacLarty An Australian game developer, Ian MacLarty develops awesome, small, and experimental games. Check out his Itch.io page to browse and play a few. He also produces the open source Lua framework Amulet. personal, tech Added by reed

The Webb Blog The blog of Anthony Paul Webb, a software architect, the articles here are really fascinating. Of particular interest are the articles on operating system UI - so much of the commentary on operating systems is focused on the underlying technical debates (microkernel vs. monolithic kernel, permissions systems, sandboxing, etc). This is a refreshing change, and it doesn't hurt that the writing is good. personal, blog, tech, user interface Added by reed

evilsocket The blog of Simone (different than simone.computer I believe) a self-taught programmer with an interest in security. Some awesome articles and projects, including the amazing Pwnagotchi, an automated wifi deauther with a cute face and a personality. Unfortunately it appears that Simone is taking a break to focus their efforts elsewhere but hopefully soon they return to publishing their awesome content. blog, personal, open source, tech Added by reed

Hundred Rabbits The creators of some totally FASCINATING software, Hundred Rabbits is a studio run by a duo consisting of a cartoonist/writer and a programmer/musician. Together, they travel the world in a small sailboat, building fascinating experimental software focused on self-reliance. personal, computers, boats, open source, design, sustainability, web, hacking, art, tech Added by reed

~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

Habitat Chronicles A blog site ran by the creators of Habitat. Covers random technical work, MMOs, and other varied topics blog, mmo, tech Added by uelen

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
