I do a lot of reading. Most of what I read comes from a combination of Twitter, Hacker News, Reddit and a long list of blogs in my RSS feed. (My RSS feed obviously includes quite a few aggregate feeds as well, such as ThoughtBlogs and Alvin Ashcraf’s Morning Dew)
The result is that I go through quite a few articles in a month. This blog post is my attempt at highlighting the best ones I’ve read in the past month. ‘Best’ in this context could mean quite a few things – interesting, thought-provoking, funny or a cool new open source project. This is my first attempt at creating such an aggregate – only time will tell if I can make it into a monthly post.
So here are the top things I read in April.
