Ask HN: What are your other interests?
3 points by ninetax 1506 days ago | hide | past | web | 4 comments | favorite
I love reading HN because of the great quality of comments and discussion. I wish there were other similar communities of people maybe focused around different things like history, politics, science, security, music, sports, etc.

For instance, I love history. I would really enjoy a community where something like this[1] could be posted and people could share insights about it.

So my question is, besides software, hardware, and startups, what cool stuff interests you? Is there enough of an interest in this community to perhaps set up a separate site with another focus?

Every Christmas season, I design, program, and construct a dancing musical lights display. Info at http://jahnchristmas.com

Do you know about http://www.reddit.com/r/history? There are subreddits for many different interests. I've found them to be of similar quality to HN. Great communities of people communicating around a shared interest. :)

Thank you. I just spent 2 hours trying to subscribe to awesome subreddits. I do think there is a substantial increase in quality in the non default subs vs the default subs.

Do you have any subreddit recommendations?
