Looking for sites or books like Cosma Shalizi's notebooks
January 30, 2016 4:26 PM   Subscribe

I really like the short explanations and exhaustive trove of links found in Cosma Shalizi's notebooks. Are there any other similar sites or books out there?

I'm looking for sites or books where a high level or intermediate level of description is given about a topic and then a large number of primary or secondary sources is provided for the reader. My interests lie in math, computer science, and programming, but any such sites are welcome.

Yes, I know Wikipedia does this to some extent, but looking for stuff that is more curated and personal.

Thanks!

There is sort of a similar flavor on Gwern's site -- more writing but also many sources noted, broad and interesting, some overlap in topics.
