Things you should maybe also be reading
I have occasionally posted compilations of blogs on IQ or HBD in general. However, it's been a while since the 2019 compilation. More have come, some are gone. Here's an updated list of blogs and magazines I read. These are in no particular order of importance, rather in the order I was able to find them in Feedly and Substack:
Steve Sailer. He needs little introduction.
Razib Khan. The best summarizer of population genetics and history.
The Upheaval. Not even sure how to describe this.
Bet on it, by Bryan Caplan. Libertarian perspectives on everything. Very prolific.
Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science, Andrew Gelman comments on various social science. Sometimes good but not as good as it used to be.

Astral Codex Ten / Slate Star Codex, Scott Alexander is a masterful writer on just about any topic.
The Shape of Code by Derek Jones, hard data on software engineering.

Richard Hanania, mostly writes on wokeness issues, but usually good.
CSPI, Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology, Hanania's think tank, of sorts.
