What’s ‘Brain Pickings’? — In their own words:
“Brain Pickings is the brain child of Maria Popova interestingness hunter-gatherer and curious mind at large…. Brain Pickings is a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness, a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why, bringing you things you didn’t know you were interested in — until you are.”
