there’s no “i” in “web”

9/14/10

Okay, you crazy wonderful people. And all you lurkers. And yes, even you, the guy in that shirt.

Which reminds me: besides the time you most graciously give me (your most humble svt., etc & etc, etc & etc), what are the five websites you absolutely have to look at every day? Let’s also take Facebook, Twitter and Google out of the equation. Mine?

NYTimes

HuffPo

Gizmodo

Digg/Reddit

Instructables

(and of course the Inside Carolina boards during certain seasons)

that was curiously hard…

    Most of my a.m. surfing (outside a few turns at FB Scrabble) is business related and boring, fed to me by my Google Reader.

    Those are the first 5 stops I make every day, and the sites I refresh regularly throughout the day. I probably check passiveaggressivenotes.com once a day, too.
    And I “stumble!” quite a bit, too – whenever I’m bored and looking for something to do online.

    Honestly, facebook gets the majority of my attention these days…spend way too much time there.

    In no particular order:
    * xtcian
    * salon.com
    * dcblogs.com
    * nhl.com (yes, even during off season)
    * washingtonpost.com
    Then I check all my friends’ blogs. It’s a wonder I get any work done at all.

    I haven’t posted here in awhile but I had to share:
    1) jabberwonk.com (like digg but for left-leaning politics – my favorite site on the net)
    2) cracked.com (funnier than the magazine ever was)
    3) digg.com
    4) http://www.buzzfeed.com/top/viral (viral and popular videos/articles/memes)
    5) unrealitymag.com (pop culture site – movies, TV, video games)
    There are also a few webcomics I follow, and I periodically browse Amazon and Netflix.

    Since I do most of my surfing during work hours and since my employer blocks most sites (including this one – so I have to come here via the berry), here is my short list.
    Xtcian.com
    Wesmirch.com
    Dailymail.co.uk
    Msnbc.com
    Insidecarolina.com

    Well, excluding Facebook & Google (esp Google News, which is my home page), I’m left with your page, BBC, CNN, Statesville (NC) Record & Landmark and Weather Underground.
    For whatever reason, I’m spending less time on the web now than at any time since I’ve had a computer….

    Yes, I check that last one every day too. It’s just too damn funny.

    When I’m not pissed off or freaked out about current events:
    N.Y. Times
    L.A. Times
    Huffington Post
    Salon
    ESPN
    When I’m on a news fast:
    Lifehacker
    GetRichSlowly
    chrisguillebeau.com/3×5/ (also known as ‘The Art of Nonconformity’)
    ESPN
    Fleshbot (good thing I’m anonymous!)
    I also spend way too much time on Match and E-Harmony to no avail.
