List of things worth mentioning, in no particular order.

Awesome YouTube channels

  • CGP Grey - incredible reason and clarity, great sense of humour, debunking misconceptions like no others.
  • potholer54 - science and reason FTW, debunking creationists, climate deniers, and generally idiots with painstaking patience and incredible irony.

Films worth watching

Science and technology sites I regularly read

  • Slashdot - news for nerds, stuff that matters
  • PhysOrg - science news, technology, physics, nanotechnology, space science, earth science, medicine
  • arXiv blog - mostly physics.
  • Not Even Wrong - an alternative view to String Theory.
  • Daniel Lemire - good analysis on the impact of technology in today's society.

Web comics I enjoy

  • xkcd - a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. Basically a geek bible. My universe.
  • Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal: excellent irony about science and society.
  • Dresden Codak - a celebration of science, death and human folly. Obligatory read if you read any of Kurzweil's works, and have a general knowledge of physics and accelerating change.
  • The Oatmeal - stinking, rancid awesomeness.
  • Dilbert - life in a cubicle.
  • PHD Comics - the life a of typical researcher. I can confirm, it's all true!
