Some pointers for effectively and efficiently wasting time.
If you have some work to do, I would strongly advise you to come back here some other time. ツ

  • Coding Horror: One of the best programming blogs out there IMHO.
  • Martin Fowler's blog: See previous comment.
  • XKCD: Where your thoughts are put into webcomic. Of course you already know it.
  • Ph.D. Comic: Ever contemplated academic life? That’s all Ph.D. Comic does!
  • /r/ProgrammingHumor: ∃x: person(x) ∧ ¬understandsProgHumor(x).
    Browse at your own discretion.
  • Commit Strip: Niche webcomic focusing on daily development life, DevOps, and many relatable things.
  • {turnoff}: Git, Linux, cloud development, programming languages, and much more. Everything crammed together in a slightly dark yet very amusing webcomic.
  • D3.js: Why didn’t anyone tell me about this earlier?
    (Data is beautiful <3)
  • Pitchfork: Good and biased music reviews. Nice entry point to discover new and old music artists and albums.
  • Tiny Desk: NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts present what I personally consider some of the best unplugged concerts I’ve ever seen.
