I've had this idea for some time now. How about a website that gathers some of the most well written open-source code and allows you to easily read it for educational purposes? Everyone says that reading source code can be a great learning tool but directly jumping into github is not very friendly to newcomers. I saw what underscore.js has done with the annotated code link and I think it's great. What do you think?

    @DarkMukke I said reading code, not copy-pasting it...

    @antoni4040 lol, i was joking, but the good answers (the ones with 50 votes and up) explain their answer which is usually more helpful then just the code bit

    @DarkMukke I know, but think of the attitude of most people asking question. They just want a quick fix. I don't take any code I don't know exactly what it does, but I think I'm in a minority. What I'm talking about is an easy way to browse real source code, selecting well written open source projects and making it simple to move through their files, read and understand their code. But it seems people are not that interested on that, so I'm probably thinking it the wrong way...
