3 Quiet Places on the Internet

As an INTJ, I need time and space to be quiet. But as a geek, I need my computer nearby. So how can I be quiet in mind and soul while wandering on the strobe-lighted and social webs?

By following the same paths, like a ritual, which lead me to simple, well-written pages where I can focus on learning and thinking deep. Below are three such places:

1. Salon’s advice column.

2. My blog backend.

3. Slate’s advice column.

I only need to type a few letters into my browser’s bar and I go to pages whose design I know deeply and whose content I find enriching or at least distracting and consuming. These are my quiet places on the internet.
