The internet is an infinite resource of knowledge, with billions of pages about every subject imaginable. But its greatest strength is connecting people to that information—and to each other.
Think of your favorite site—the URL that you reflexively check whenever you're bored. Odds are, it's a community packed with constantly updated content: top new stories, photos from friends, and viral videos that you'll smirk at now and forget five minutes later.
These networks make the internet feel alive. Yeah, they can be distracting. But they also act as communities where you can trade advice, talk to likeminded people, sharpen your skills, and make new friends.
Whether you're a designer, maker, coder, or just a curious reader, here are the very best places to connect with and learn from your peers online.
