Linguistics is a pretty amazing field that I always feel like I should learn more about.

You definitely should. It's quite a fun field, especially historical linguistics. I recommend /r/linguistics and /r/badlinguistics (they require an explanation of why things are bad). I've learned quite a lot from them.

I've sunk a lot of my spare time into binging all sorts of Wikipedia articles on the evolution of languages.

Same. There's usually a linguistics-related article on the front page of HN every couple days too. Seems like people who are interested in software tend to also be interested in linguistics...
