Favorite digital things

In the spirit of digital minimalism, I’ve cleaned out my bookmarks and compiled them into this big list. This list only includes digital things; no physical stuff, no media. The purpose of this list is three-fold:

  1. Make cool things discoverable for others
  2. Serve as a personal bookmark page for things I like
  3. Force me to be intentional about the things I use and read

This list is constantly updated. When I find a cool new thing, I’ll add it. When I lose interest in something, I’ll remove it. As usual, indicates an absolute favorite.


Blogs

These are the blogs I read regularly. They’ve influenced my thinking and formed who I am today. I try to check each one around once per month.

Coding and tech

Posts and articles

These posts have inspired or influenced me in some way. They’re things I reread and share with others. I tend to like concise posts (lists) or posts that graphically explain something complicated.

Software

These are the things I use every day. It’s a list whittled down over about 5 years. It’s not exhaustive, but it’s pretty close; I still use other stuff like Google Docs and Drive.

I have a strong preference for software that is fast, outwardly simple, and that does one thing extremely well.
