For New Readers

Welcome to Ribbonfarm. This blog is devoted to refactored perception. That’s not exactly a helpful phrase, but think of it as an ongoing exploration of new perspectives for familiar things. The easiest way to get oriented is to dive right in.

  • Here is a quick introduction to The Rust Age of Ribbonfarm (2007-2012), a relatively self-contained body of exploration, mostly by Venkat. Includes curated collections of posts and even a map.
  • We are currently in the as-yet-unnamed second age of Ribbonfarm (2013 – ), a much more democratic age with a changing roster of residents. If you are uninterested in ancient history, you can safely join the party with the 2013 archives.
  • If you want some reading inspiration, check out the Now Reading page, where I track my own book reading.
