Wonk News is “curated link aggregation” by its readers, for its readers. That’s you!
It’s a forum — and eventually, well may we hope, the forum — for fellow wonks, geeks and tragics to share and discuss news, policy, ideas and commentary related to Australian politics and media.
Politically, Wonk News a neutral platform, and we hope to attract readers and contributors of all political stripes. Definitely no polka dots though.
How it works
Vote for interesting links by clicking the plus button alongside each one, so more readers find them. The freshest links, in order of submission time rather than score, can be found on the Latest page. Note that your own links automatically receive your vote.
Join the discussion by commenting on links and replying to other comments. If you think someone is not playing nice, for whatever reason, please click “Report Abuse” to alert the moderators — check the commenting guidelines for our perspective on “playing nice”.
We’ve even built some awesome bonus features designed especially for the growing politico-tragic-media-wonk-o-sphere™ on Twitter.

The programmer in me loves Hacker News by the folks at Y Combinator. One glance will demonstrate just how much it has inspired our simple, no-nonsense look and feel — but it is the quality and community of Hacker News to which Wonk News truly aspires.
