Cole Hudson Google is good for this! My go-to example is the set of inbound links (think Project Xanadu) to Simon DeDeo's Santa Fe page: ''. This works because interesting people cite interesting people, so it's pretty easy to continuously expand outwards from a single node.
🤔 David Ah, I hadn't ever thought of searching for inbound links using intext. This is a great suggestion. Thank you!

Cole Hudson Ciro Santilli is an interesting corner case in the pantheon of high-conscientious, mostly online(?) individuals. Other notable figures here being Alexey Guzey, Gwern, etc.
🤔 David It would be neat to find a site with a listing of notable bloggers in niche domains.

Cole Hudson for the californians, the LAO provides a fairly thorough analysis of each proposition here:
🤔 David Much appreciated! I will say that in my area of California--the Central Valley--there has been quite a push to vote No on proposition 23 (dialysis). Funny how the text bears little semblance to the fearmongering by the advertisements (<_<)

🤔 David Hi everyone! I hope people had a good weekend :) I would like to let you know that the little "Subreply Book Club" is coming to the end of our first read-through. The book we are reading is "The Three-Body Problem" by Cixin Liu. If you would like to join us, we will have an exchange about the book after this week. If you've read the book before then feel free to join in to share your thoughts :)

🧉 Martin Finally updated my /now page. Anyone else have one? If so, share! :)
🤔 David That's a neat experience you're having! Also, the /now page is a good idea. I may create one now after I finish playing around with a little app

🏒 Lucian Marin Do you want to become a news section on Subreply? It would be possible to reply on articles.

Seb Still trying to understand what exactly this is. I'm curious though, might stick around for a while
🤔 David It's simple, text-based conversation that doesn't include likes or dislikes :) my experience has been similar to that of a forum, where I only participate in one thread and sometimes veer off into little side-discussions

Seb Tiying up my social networks, trying to disappear from the internet, I came across this site. I last posted here years ago, nice to see it's stil here!
🤔 David It had a bit of a surge a few months ago when it got posted to Tildes and Hacker News :) it seems that the majority of those who joined (myself included) have dropped off, though.

🚴 Aditya So I just tried to ask "How's everyone doing?" but it turns out I asked that 6 weeks ago as well. But anyway, how's everyone doing now? :D

🐢 Keb What is your text editor of choice? I'm a Sublime Text kinda guy. :)
🤔 David My daily editor is Visual Studio Code. I use it for a variety of tasks involving text editing other than programming. If I lived on a terminal, though, I would use Vim every day.

Diva "Be nice to people on the way up; because you just might meet them on the way down." What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
🤔 David "Think before you speak." A platitude that is well-worth understanding.

🤔 David I just had my office chair swapped out due to the back losing support and the cylinder going back has been killing me for weeks because of this. Just sitting in this new chair makes a world of difference!

Diva I am going to have to get an office chair - I am currently working from home, and my neck and shoulders are killing me.

Nick S. What is the best time of day? For me it is 11pm-3am. There' s something special about those hours.
🤔 David 8am-11am is my most productive time. However, my favorite time of day (for now) is bedtime for the kids when we get to read together :)
