Become a Genius

We all want to be smarter. Thomas Oppong put together a list of 33 Web sites that we all can use to become geniuses. (He did, but it was taken down)

“I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein

A few of my favorites from his list:

  1. University of the People – having educational opportunities that reach beyond online video courses is fantastic.
  2. Coursera – this one is always on every list I make regarding top educational resources.
  3. Investopedia – knowing more about how the markets work and personal finance can never be a bad thing.
  4. Mental Floss – great for learning about some of the cooler topics science, culture, and society.
  5. In a Nutshell – while not technically on the list, this YouTube channel put together by some german graphic artists covers a wide array of topics in a way anyone can understand, with awesome visuals.
  6. C.G.P. Grey – also not technically on the list, however as an educational YouTube resource, Grey tops that list, if there is one.

Check out the rest of Thomas’ list if you’re curious. I recommend you check out every link he listed.
