Things to read


#1

I’m bored with my usual online news sites. Does anyone have any suggestions for good online reads? I’m looking for journalistic pieces rather than breaking news headlines.


#2

Love this question. I feel the same way. Very keen to see what people suggest.

I’ll tweet it out as well.

I opted out of everything related to news a long time ago and haven’t been happier since! :slight_smile:
UX articles and case studies for me!
I only indulge in science and design news form time to time and I use Muzli for that :smiley:

Agree with @ari_rahmati. I’ve stopped looking at most news sites and social media and life has become a much happier place! :hugs:

Although if you need a news fix there’s lots of ‘positive’ news sites popping up, such as https://www.positive.news/ and https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/

same as richal and ari, people still look at me funny when i tell them i dont follow the news, social media or politics. I’m glad some people do understand!

Great resources listed. Trying out Muzli as it looks interesting :+1:

As designers it’s our objective to go against the grain :wink: Glad you like Muzli, it’s also Chrome extension which gives you more control over the news feed.

Put me in the category of one who doesn’t follow the news. It makes me anxious.

I’ve tried telling my mum to watch the news less as I think it is affecting her mental health.

Thank you!

What an exciting topic guys. As a designer, we are supposed to be updated with News or at least have a good idea of what’s going on. I always find myself hiding from this news category. But its good to know there are positive news sites available for people like us. I will be exploring them soon.
