Therefore, my favorite HN post changes for what I am interested in which is highly time sensitive based on what I am currently doing. I highly recommend everyone to search for "hacker news <some_new_thing_(generally_technology)_you_are_looking_into>" when researching new things.
Example: I was building a django app in my spare time and I wanted to know more about django channels which allows one to create web sockets. I Google searched "hacker news django channels" and found 116 comments talking about it from other professionals when it was first released: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11305869
"Ask HN: Sell my startup for $14M because I can't raise $2M?" https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15314663
"First employee of startup? You are probably getting screwed" https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2949323
"How I Sold My Bible App Company" https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11032480
"Ask HN: Who is willing to work for coin?" actually a negative example https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14776408
That, and the Great Putnam Comeback.
This has been asked multiple times before, and it's generally a useful and interesting discussion, and new things are learned.
If anything, linking to searches for prior times it's been asked would be good. Also searches for people asking about favorite comments.
