You asked about my internet literacy habits: websites I am regularly visiting, blogs I often read, preferred web pages. Since there are quite a few I am truly fond of, I will describe them in series, randomly choosing 3 web pages in each article.

“I’m not a fan of giving a website a simple number like an IQ rating because like people they can vary in all kinds of different ways. So I’d be interested in different organizations labeling websites in different ways.” Tim Berners-Lee

BINAR featuring Alex Radu

BINAR

BINAR is a twofold human project which pairs two equally talented and lively photographers – Geraldine Aresteanu and Cornel Lazia.

…the cult thriller, addressing both critics and the general public, directed by Alfred Hitchcock (1940).
