What’s a quasi-blog without a “favorite links” blurb? Here are some of the places I visit regularly:

  1. MacEdition. Duh.
  2. Slashdot. Despite it’s virulently pro–Linux editorial slant, it does a crackerjack job of covering science and technology with a close eye on the computer industry. The comments alone are a goldmine of information, even if the signal–to–noise ratio can be offputting at times.
  3. The Register. If you read this British IT weblog everyday, you will start sounding like a prophet to your fellow industry professionals, a hard bitten cynic with your finger on the pulse of the industry’s winners and losers. Yes, it’s just that easy. If you don’t have the time to peek in regularly, at least read the BOFH articles, and you’ll be able to fake your way through the hard-bitten and cynical part.
  4. MacSlash. Fun, timely and topical links and (usually) worthwhile reader commentary in the Slashdot blog format. [Remember that the correct link to MacSlash is now, not – Ed.]
  5. RootPrompt. If you do Unix, you cannot afford to miss this blog! You will learn something new almost every time you stop by, and it has a platform–agnostic policy which will have you reading about performance tuning on Solaris mainframes one day, and wireless networking on FreeBSD the next.
  6. Ars Technica. Some of the smartest big– brains writing about computer technology, period, the end. These guys know what they’re talking about.
  7. MacInTouch. A bit too gloomy in outlook at times, yet it certainly is comprehensive and timely. Besides, I really dig the super– simple ads: a plaintext hyperlink in a little box between stories. I’ve actually bought stuff because that simple little ad caught my eye without cheesing me off by being overbearing.
  8. As The Apple Turns. Hee hee hee!
  9. Plastic. A political wrangling virtual community. It can be a little too crunchy granola radical for my taste at times, though.
  10. Memepool. Forced consciousness expansion. Mandatory.

If you have a few sites you like to trawl on a regular basis, or just feel deserves a plug, post below. I do read those feedback things, you know.
