Knowledge, Learning, Community
I went to the subjects I know, of course, Education and Philosophy. Philosophy first: I found myself disappointed in the listing, not so much because of the quality of the resources - I'm sure they're great - but because of the generality and blandness of the titles. There's no real grasp of the structure of the discipline, so we see, say, DOAJ (directory of open access journals) side by side with the Epistemology research guide. Professor A. C. Grayling (why him?) side by side with the Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy. Education next. Same sort of criticism. An index that just links to other indices (along with an apparently random and very incomplete set of resources) isn't useful. Worse, it's not fun.
