PostInteresting articles.

I thought it was time we had a topic where people could post random but interesting articles just to give people something to read during a dull lunchtime at work. I'll start with a nice article about Heathrow airport.

Lots of small posts, but there are the occasional MEGA POSTS, which are fantastic reads. Well worth going through the archive and reading the stuff on AI, The Fermi Paradox and his Elon Musk series, which go into crazy details on stuff like clean energy, rocket science and putting people on Mars.

Well written, funny and, especially on some of the more complex subjects, very well explained in laymans terms.

Check out some of our stuff!
