Maria Popova is the highly creative mind behind Brain Pickings.

A resource for writings spanning art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology, and more, the site explores how these different disciplines illuminate one another to glean some insight into that grand question of how to live, and how to live well. Popova has written for Wired UK, The Atlantic,The New York Times, and Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab, among others, and is a MIT Futures of Entertainment Fellow.
