Tools For Daily Learning
In my post yesterday about making note of at least one new thing you have learned each day, I did point to one or two suggestions for ensuring you have at least one thing to write down. That said, I wanted to give folks a nice list of my own that one could copy for such reference:
Random page on Wikipedia — Just what it says on the tin. Click on this link and it will take you to a random page on Wikipedia. Chances are, you’ll land on something you did not know before 99% of the time. I just learned about mathematician Artemas Martin (best known for his puzzle columns in various periodicals) while testing this link for you.
Merriam-Webster Online Word Of The Day — Today’s word (as I write this) is inchmeal. An adverb that means gradually.
Wonders & Marvels — A Community for Curious Minds who love History, its Odd Stories, and Good Reads — A wonderful history blog with a bent towards historical literature. I learn something new with every post.
Caesura Letters — I know I have said this before but I will say it again, every morning, this arrives in my email inbox and I always, always, learn something new. These are daily reflections wrapped in huge, delicious, doses of knowledge.
Now, my bet is that there are many more I don’t know about. I’ve only mentioned a few that I use personally. That said, I always welcome even more sources of knowledge and learning. Feel free to suggest them to me on App.net or Twitter. Perhaps I’ll even update this post with some of them to share them with others.
I’m a writer. Writing is how I make this world better, friendlier, stronger place. If these words improved your day, please let me know by contributing here.
