As somebody that is constantly on Hacker News, reddit, Digg, and other news sites, I tend to read a ton of articles. If I think an article is particularly good, I’ll save it to my Pocket archive. That said, here are some of the most interesting articles that I’ve read this year. These are not necessarily the best articles, but they’re some that caught my attention (in no particular order). All of these articles and posts are either directly related to programming, technology, or things that I believe would be interesting to somebody with a similar personality to me.
