About

I’m Erik, and my goal is to explore the best places to learn on the internet.

I want to stop relying on interesting things to magically find their way to me and to start actively exploring where the smartest content lives. What are the sites, people, and resources that enrich the online experience and help it become the amazing learning tool it’s supposed to be?

I’m also obsessed with podcasts as one of the most underutilized tools for learning, so if you are looking for recommendations, be sure to sign up for the weekly newsletter in the menu.

For any questions or suggestions, shoot me an email at erik@hurtyourbrain.com or tweet me @erikthejones.

p.s.- You might be wondering, “dude, what’s with the terrible drawings?” Well it really boils down to two things. 1) I’m sick of all the stock pholography usage across the internet. 2) I want this site to be about learning and one of my goals is to learn how to draw. So I figured why not force myself to create all the images for this site by hand. Plus, there’s nothing like public shame to motivate improvement 🙂
