Bionic Reading showed up a few times in my Twitter feed, but I’ve actually been using it for awhile in my mobile RSS reader (Reeder, and yes I inexplicably still subscribe to RSS feeds.) I can’t speak to the purported improvements in cognition, but I do find I read a bit faster and it’s a bit easier to read long passages for long periods.

As some who is historically unskilled at art but excited to learn, I’ve been digging sadface ( Happyface )‘s pixel art mini-tutorials on Twitter.

There are also video versions of some of the tutorials on YouTube as well.
