Meta-Sources

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

What are meta-sources?

“A meta-source is a source of information that is a compilation of multiple sources.”

What makes a quality meta-source?

I like to distinguish between two levels:

A level 1 meta-source curates and synthesizes multiple quality sources. (eg Shane Parrish)
A level 2 meta-source also integrates the sources. (eg Brain Johnson)

We largely form our beliefs based on the (perceived) credibility of the source. This implicit heuristic is a tendency we all have. Besides striving to be more discerning, one way to mitigate this tendency is by focusing on quality meta-sources.

What are your favorite meta-sources?

Shane Parrish’s Farnam Street [<link], Brian Johnson’s Optimize [<link], and a selection of newsletters.
