Here are Dominic's first five...
"A depressing, but very well-designed, interactive map and timeline of species loss, both imminent and actual."
"I met one of the women behind this initiative from The Met, and was amazed to discover how detailed it is. Not sure if the world is really tapping into this resource as actively as it should."
"A timeline of a different stripe (till now I also didn't realize how obsessed I am with time-lines). Always some neglected gems here to uncover, from that marvelous territory known as 'the past'."
"Smart and engaging film theory and criticism, from New York's most enthusiastic 'cynephile'."
"I get a lot of good, out-of-print music here, for the cocktail parties in my head."
"A wonderful, pioneering literary hub dedicated to translation and global writing."
"Mosfilm's YouTube channel, many of which have English subtitles, for when only mid-century Russian movies will hit the spot."
"Plus, since I waved goodbye to the TV, various live stream sites that keep changing by the day, thanks to the eternal game of Internet whack-a-mole between Big Content and Eastern European digital Robin Hoods."
