The internet was originally created for military purposes, and later expanded to be a communications tool for researchers and the like. But we all know that the guys behind the project knew its ultimate goal was so folks could share awesome stuff on it.

If you’ve been diligent in reading this article, you’ll already more or less know what r/Awesome is all about.
But in case you missed it, r/Awesome is a lovely part of Reddit (a social news aggregation, content rating, and discussion website) that is dedicated to all things awesome.
No, seriously, there are effectively very few limitations as to what you can find there. The description says that it is a subreddit “for everything that is awesome!” and the only rule the moderators are asking folks to follow (apart from the technical no gore, no smut, and no screenshots requirement) is to post “things that are incredibly rare or cool, not some ordinary cats, chicken, scenery, drawings or t-shirts etc., they are not awesome…”
Sure, you can argue with the chicken part, but the content is ultimately up to the users to judge. More or less.

In general, the subreddit is home to mostly visual content. This ranges from people’s personal artistic endeavors and creations to feel-good and positive news to places people visited and were left in awe by to just regular memes and impressive things found around the internet.
Much of it has a positive twist to it—in the vein of restoring faith in humanity, or humans being bros to each other—but in other cases it will be things that most don’t see or even think about, a certain kind of new experience that is, at the very least, interesting and satisfying.
