For those overwhelmed by the web, a literate refuge. What The New Yorker was a half-century ago, Salon is now—witty and wise, with an eclectic combo of criticism, reporting and commentary on technology, politics and all things cultural. You’ll find something for you, whether it’s the Critic’s Pick for the top ten movies of the year or Laura Miller’s take on the last book Roberto Bolaño ever wrote. Tantalizing and stylish, and always a fresh reminder of what a real web magazine should look like. You don’t have to love The New Yorker to love this site, but it sort of helps.
