The Nexus Today is a news aggregator, highlighting interesting links from around the web on a variety of topics. Unlike Google News, Reddit, and other popular news aggregators, it’s designed with an explicit focus on accessibility, privacy, diversity and justice. You can read more about it here – or check it out at https://links.thenexus.today.
One of the advantages of the approach I've taken is that it's fairly easy to add new topics. After feedback from the Oracle for Transfeminist Technologies, I added Accountability last week. In the aftermath of the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and with warnings about ongoing threats of violent actions around the country, I added the timely topics of Insurrection and Impeachment over the weekend.
To use the site, pick a topic from the menus. If you like visuals, there's also a "show images" option. Or if you prefer an Apple News/reddit-style display, with just the headlines and smaller images, you can use the alternate link at https://links.thenexus.today/news. [I know, I know, that's kind of awkward ... I'll integrate it better soon.]
And if you're thinking that these look a lot like the links that I include in updates here on JEDII Tech, that's not a coincidence – most of the links in the link roundups do indeed come from The Nexus Today. The site operates mostly automatic (with a limited amount of editing); I cherry-pick some of the best links for the newsletter. Right now, that involves cut-and-paste, but one of the things on my list is to streamline things.
