I had an idea of spending a week or two or three of blogging rants except I can’t remember anything else I was going to rant about. Instead here’s what I am reading at the moment…and it’s not blogs. Well ok, I’m currently ruminating on Mr Shaddow’s post on the role of electronic services in libraries and think that’s worth a wider conversation. In recent months I’ve been focusing on reading…actual books, no wait, actual novels in electronic form. Not physical books. I decided I should revisit Raymond E. Feist and read his entire oeuvre. Some have been fun to revisit, and there’s a few I missed as well.
When I do get round to reading my feeds it’s mostly tech and gaming and these are the things I’m reading, if not regularly, but at least dipping into from time to time:
- Ars Technica – tech + interesting articles
- Gizmag – new tech but not limited to computer stuff
- Kotaku – because games
- Liliputing – I have a thing for mobile computing
- Pocketables – ditto
- Polygon – because games and occasional interesting commentary
- UMPC Portal – again, small computing stuff
One site I used to enjoy until it disappeared was Download Squad. It was good for finding out about new software and updates without getting too heavy. I haven’t really found a substitute for that.
