Sunday Reading: MIT Technology Review

Sunday December 02, 2012 Written by  chris

The MIT Technology Review is a rich vein of science-ish knowledge into which you should tap. Unapologetically geeky, the focus is on the human significance of our interaction with the tools we create, the problems they solve and the meanings they propose.

Published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the magazine is as rigorously researched as the journal it purports to be and as lively (read: readable) as the magazine that it actually is.

The latest issue covered topics as diverse as planning human trips to Mars, the history of the footnote from Borges to David Foster Wallace, and the social science of Facebook.

You can access large parts of the magazine for free online, but for those who still enjoy flipping the physical page, the bi-monthly print edition is available too.
