What are your favorite 'deep thinking' blogs, websites, and resources? e.g. Less Wrong (on rationality), Farnam Street (learning from what others have already figured out), Raptitude (on getting better at being human), Ribbonfarm (experiments in refactored perception), Cal Newport (study/learning techniques), etc.

These blogs talk about all manner of things, from Less Wrong's posts and sequences[0] on truth, beliefs, and rationality; Venkatesh Rao's ideas on legibility and business on Ribbonfarm[1]; Shane Parrish's ideas on mental models on Farnam Street. but what ties them together are that they are all talking about thinking and thinking deeply. What other sites do you enjoy in this category?

The Volokh Conspiracy. Great discussions of law and public policy.

Now hosted by The Washington Post, but hey, nobody's perfect.

PS Not to hijack this thread - but I am trying to identify a great blog to follow on 1) astronomy/cosmology and 2) neoroscience. Would be great if anyone reading this thread has any pointer
