I've been feeling a little conflicted about spamming you all with this stuff. I post it partly because it's a way for me to keep this stuff organized and partly because I figure it might be of interest to someone? And also I just don't know where else I'd put it that it would reach a higher ratio of interested to non-interested people.

In any case, reminder that at the bottom of this post are instructions for how to filter out a specific user tag (for example "topic: politics") from your feed.

And finally, be aware that I'm not vouching for any of the stuff I link, often because I don't know enough yet to judge. I just link stuff that sounds interesting.
