Welcome to the promoted page of the gemini capsule of Nicksphere.com (mirrored on the web)! On this page, I promote the content and ideas of others.


A person or organization's name listed on this page does not mean I endorse everything they've ever said or done, or even most of what they've said or done. It only means they are worth looking into because they either have worthwhile ideas or they themselves do something important/impactful.

The same disclaimer goes for content on this page. Just because I add a book does not mean I endorse every sentence in that book. It merely means that book contains ideas I deem important. Nevertheless, I do try to minimize the amount of bad ideas and information in my promoted content. Just remember that no one has all the answers, question everything and think for yourself.
