The 100 Best, Most Interesting Blogs and Websites of 2012 (Categorized)
Editor’s note: 2015’s list of the best, most interesting websites has arrived! I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly running into so many cool websites I want to remember or recommend to people but I don’t always have time to make a note of them, add them to Evernote, bookmark them in Delicious, etc. So this is a good example of a post I created as a personal (and completely unscientific) resource that other people will probably benefit from as well. Some of these sites are pretty new while others have been around for a while now, but they are all awesome right now in 2012. So whether you are looking for a way to catch up on the latest Internet trends, want to find some exciting new content to load into your favorite news aggregating app or are just bored and need to waste some time online, this list represents hours of potential discovery.

10 Signs a Dude’s Been Pussywhipped Tom Leykis, from The Tom Leykis Show, gives TSJ the lowdown on when you gotta retreat back to your man cave. 1 – If you’ve ever agreed to go out and buy tampons, Midol, or a copy of Cosmo while your girl is on the rag, you’ve definitely been pussywhipped. After all, what did she do about that before you came along? 2 – Ever seen a vampire movie? Do you know who Ryan Gosling is? Uh-huh. Yes, You CAN Watch TV Online Legally & For Free Whether you’re thinking of cutting the cord or just want to watch TV on your own schedule instead of the television network’s, there are more legal ways to watch TV online than ever. Even better, many of these legal options are free. Most of these websites will expose you to commercials – someone has to pay for the free TV – but you’ll end up watching commercials if you pay to watch TV the traditional way, anyway. Many of these services are only available in specific countries, such as the USA. Some services are only available in the UK, so even Americans can’t watch everything. If you’re one of the majority of human beings living outside these two countries, never fear – we’ve covered easy ways you can get access to region-blocked media services, wherever you live.

Storyboard Of the thousands and thousands of micro-cultures extant today, the pursuit of bending things is a particularly niche obsession. This is the world of Bending Steel, which follows the personal journey of Chris Schoeck as he tries to find path forward to improving his body, mind, and spirit. He locates this path via the traditions of the vaudeville strongmen of Coney Island, who were known to bend nails, horseshoes, and steel bars with their hands, legs, necks, or even their hair and teeth. As Schoeck trains and challenges himself to bend, he finds a family of sorts among other would-be strongmen – the kind of kinship and validation that had eluded him for his entire life. The story culminates in a strongman show on Coney Island where Schoeck attempts to bend a steel bar that has always defeated him before, in front of his friends and a crowd of strangers who represent all his fears and doubts. – Chris Mohney

Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research We study the structure and dynamics of Web traffic networks based on data from HTTP requests made by users at Indiana University. Gathering anonymized requests directly from the network rather than relying on server logs and browser instrumentation allows us to examine large volumes of traffic data while minimizing biases associated with other data sources. It also gives us valuable referrer information that we can use to reconstruct the subset of the Web graph actually traversed by users.
