For a lot of us, this is even true at our fingertips, thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones and an ever-increasing push for online greatness by tech engineers all over the world. As a result, there are countless websites out there that are geared to make you smarter and more brilliant for either a low or no cost. Here are just 25 killer websites that may just make you more clever than ever before. 1. This isn’t the first time I’ve recommended this language-teaching website (and app), and it certainly won’t be the last. 2. Have you ever wanted to pick up a subject you’re not well-versed in, but you didn’t have the money to invest in a college course? 3. Guitar is one of the few instruments out there that’s actually pretty easy to learn if you’re a little older, making it one of the most accessible instruments. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. verzamelt interessante teksten en video's om van te leren Massive Open Online Courses zijn het helemaal, zelfs de grote universiteiten zoals MIT en Harvard hebben ze.

Dat moet de startup hebben gedacht, want zij hebben een tool ontwikkeld waarmee dat kan. Gibbon bevat afspeellijsten met gecureerd materiaal over onderwerpen. Je kunt als gebruiker inloggen en playlists selecteren over onderwerpen waarover jij wilt leren.

Codex Seraphinianus: A new edition of the strangest book in the world Codex Seraphinianus: A new edition of the strangest book in the world In October Rizzoli will be republishing what is regarded by many to be the strangest book in the world, the Codex Seraphinianus. The Codex is unlike other historically well-known strange books (such as the Voynich Manuscript), in that the author of the book is not only known (Luigi Serafini is his name), he’s still alive. But the book is just so damned strange that it has accumulated a veritable industry of speculation about its meaning, deeper origins, and whether the language in which it is written actually has any syntax or not. My fascination with the Codex Seraphinianus dates back to the early 1980s when it was published and when I was working in a Waldenbooks store on Montague Street in Brooklyn, known to other stores as “The Zoo” because of the cast of characters who worked there. Over the years a whole cult has grown up on the Internet devoted to the Codex Seraphinianus.
