What’s In Your Digital Man-Cave?

Being a man in the digital era means that you need to have knowledge of all things digital that goes beyond the average. An internet-savvy male has to know about more things than just social networks and news aggregators – he has to be capable of finding the right knowledge, and the right forms of online entertainment, at any time, using nothing but a computer and an internet search provider.

The digital man-cave I mentioned in the title is not a thing in the real world. It’s more like a collection of information sources, service providers, and tools – must-haves for the technology-savvy male of the 21st century. Here is what you’ll find in mine.

Far from the mainstream news

No, I’m not a hipster – I’m just very selective when it comes to the sources which I trust when it comes to information. Being a man with many sources at hand, I don’t trust major media corporations to be unbiased. Instead of relying on the information filtered by these media monsters, I prefer to rely on sources that are either close to the fire, or have enough knowledge to pinpoint the real meaning behind the news.

For health information, for example, I don’t rely on major news portals. Instead, I have two go-to sources: Science Based Medicine and Health News Review, both of them written by medical experts with a real dedication to their cause.

Being prepared is a must

Last, but not least, let me mention a less usual addition to my digital man-cave: a huge collection of recipes, survival tips, and low-tech life hacks. While I’m not a prepper – I don’t store months-worth of dry foods in my bug-out location – I like to think that, if disaster strikes, I will be prepared to handle it. Being prepared is a must for every man, because you never know when a trick you saw in a survivalist’s videos might be able to save your life.
