Fantastischer Thread auf Reddit: What insightful and thought-provoking websites have you across throughout the years? Here are mine. Ich werde meinen kompletten Sonntagabend damit verbringen, alles da mindestens mal anzusehen. Vieles kenne ich, einiges habe ich hier schon sehr oft gebracht (TED, RSAnimate) manches habe ich im Feadreader, das meiste kenne ich noch nicht. Auch unbedingt in die Comments schauen, dort findet man dann weiter unten zwar auch Schrott wie Cracked.com, aber man muss ja auch nicht alles anklicken.

Hier die erste Hälfte der Linksammlung vom Original Poster:

Educational:

TED - Ideas worth spreading.
Khan Academy - a library of over 2,400 videos covering everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history. A mission to help you learn what you want, when you want.
Brain Pickings - "a discovery engine for interestingness, culling and curating cross-disciplinary curiosity-quenchers, and separating the signal from the noise to bring you things you didn’t know you were interested in until you are." One of my favorites.
Big Think - Blogs, articles and videos from the world's top leaders and thinkers.
Thinking Allowed - provides an open, non-adversarial forum for the exchange of intelligent, alternative ideas.
TWM Reference Index - a variety of interesting and mentally stirring articles about science, consciousness, and anthropology.
RSAnimate - Dozens of insightful talks by leading scientists and scholars in their fields drawn real-time on a white board. Awesome for visual learners.
Lizard Point - Learn geography!

Inspirational:
High Existence - Challenging the way you live!
S.E.R.I. - Social Engineering Research Initiative
but does it float - The most thoughtful art you've never seen.
Compassion Pit - This one's cool. Choose to be either a venter or a listener, and participate in an interaction with another person in that role. This is an enlightening way to improve your listening skills, or to get something off your chest!
Heavy Petal - How to make seedballs, or flowerbombs. Get guerrilla gardening today!
Post Secret - We all have secrets.
If Everyone Knew - Five facts worth knowing.
inspire me now - Inspirational and novel designs from across the internet.
Motivation RPG - Stay motivated.
MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art - The Museum of Modern Art is a place that fuels creativity, ignites minds, and provides inspiration.
The Ruthless Arena - The proving ground for philosophy.
