For New Readers

Welcome to Ribbonfarm. As our tagline declares, this blog is devoted to “constructions in magical thinking”. That’s not exactly a helpful phrase, but think of it as an ongoing exploration of disciplined solipsistic thinking. This is a relatively new thing, which began in 2019. From 2007-12, our tagline was “experiments in refactored perceptions”.

We organize our archives by 6-year-long “ages”. We are currently in the as-yet-unnamed third age of ribbonfarm, (2019-2024).

  • The previous age was the Snowflake Age (2013 -18). Here are annual roundups for 2018, 201720162015, 2014 and 2013 check out the ribbonfarm map and accompanying video editorial.
  • If you are interested in ancient archives, check out  the overview/retrospective The Rust Age of Ribbonfarm (2007-2012), page covering the first 5 years (also available in ebook form).
  • If you want some reading inspiration, check out the Now Reading page, where we track what we are reading.
