Very interesting topic though! the blog format seems so needlessly illegible. i really think there is space for a search engine that uncovers the Deep Structure that is encoded in links and Capitalized Concepts.

I think if it hadn't been for the ribbonfarm.com/for-new-readers page which gave me good entry points into the Rust Age I probably never would have stuck around.

@alec yeah a search like that would be cool! im curious how well the standard techniques (centrality measures between pages, topic modelling) amount to finding interesting pages

for new readers, start here, best of, etc compilation pages tend to be really useful, and i wish more blogs had them
