About # Reading List # Archive
I try not to follow the daily news cycle, which I find more distracting than informative. I also shy away from social media, so I don’t have a constant stream of click bait news headlines competing for my attention.
To keep up to date with current affairs I try follow websites that I find interesting using their RSS feeds. I have set up a server running a self hosted instance of FreshRSS to aggregate the feeds so I can read them from my office, home or phone. The list might look long, but each source isn’t updated on a daily basis so I find it somewhat manageable.
My current list of daily reads includes a mix of general international news, technology news, African focused articles, anarchist news and perspectives, and stoic philosophy:
