5 Sites I've Got Bookmarked That Might Surprise You

Shares

Hey, I'm frequently asked which sites I recommend. I tend to be overly minimalist, but beyond that, I mostly use RSS feeds instead of visiting sites. Though, here are some sites that I make a point to visit pretty often…

(in no particular order)

  1. politicalwire.com I rely on Taegan Goddard's Political Wire for straight, fair political news, he gets right to the point. It's an eagerly anticipated part of my news reading.
  2. io9.comio9's a daily publication that covers science, science fiction, and the world of tomorrow. I was very much into sci fi and fantasy in the 50s and 60s – back then sci fi and fantasy were mostly books and very little media – and often still am.
  3. buzzmachine.com – This is where Jeff Jarvis blogs about media and news, he's the real deal.
  4. dilbert.com Okay, my life has much in common with the Dilbert comic strip, and I've been Dilbert for much of my life. Having a sense of humor helps.
  5. gigaom.com This site provides insight on disruptive companies, people, and trends. Gigagom provides a credible analysis of emerging technologies. [UPDATE: GigaOm has closed down. Another good site to check out is http://readwrite.com, another one of my favorites.]

What sites do you visit often that might surprise folks, but are really useful? I'd love to check 'em out.
