brainpickings: maria popova

There’s no better example of curation done as as well as Maria Popova does it on her site BrainPickings

Brain Pickings is a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness, culling and curating cross-disciplinary curiosity-quenchers, and separating the signal from the noise to bring you things you didn’t know you were interested in until you are.

In order for us to truly create and contribute to the world, we have to be able to connect countless dots, to cross-pollinate ideas from a wealth of disciplines, to combine and recombine these ideas and build new ideas

I’ve collected some great interview transcripts and video with maria below
