This page lists the various websites I keep track of. When I am not reading an interesting book or listening to music I am usually reading something else. I consider reading one of my core activities during the day.
Ars Technica – www.arstechnica.com
This website gives good insights in digital and technological trends and developments.
Digging in tha Crates – www.digginginthacrates.com
This website is run by Sir Bonkers. He is a very good reviewer and likes all kinds of music, in particular Hip Hop.
The Encyclopaedia Britannica – www.britannica.com
If I did not have access to the internet, I would have a set of these books. For fact checking and general information searches, the famous Encyclopaedia Britannica is a great source.
The Guardian – www.theguardian.com/uk
Among the newspapers I frequently check out, the Guardian is a favourite because sometimes there are excellent articles and comments.
Google – www.google.com
As a general search engine Google is a great search engine. I tried others but I prefer Google for general searches.
InnerFidelity – www.innerfidelity.com
As I mention this website I immediately confirm I am into audio. Besides that though, this website is very informative and accessible. The founder of the website, Tyl Hertsens is an expert in many things audio.
Khan Academy – www.khanacademy.org
Sometimes a bit of explanation, some examples and a few exercises are better than thick books that present you with walls of text. Khan Academy helped me a lot through my studies.
The New York Times – www.nytimes.com
This newspaper is also a newspaper I sometimes check out. Whether to have an impression of the American perspective or just for interesting and excellent articles, the New York Times is among my favourites.
Quartz – www.qz.com
This website writes about recent news and particular trends and developments. It is one of my favourite websites for news that offers different perspectives.
Behind The White Coat – doctorly.wordpress.com
I like short stories. Sometimes the best stories, fiction or non-fiction are short and leave you to imagine being there. I have discovered this blog when starting out and it is one of my favourites. I can only thank the author for sharing such good reads.
Tech Dirt – www.techdirt.com
In addition to Ars Technica Tech Dirt focuses on all things digital and technological. Also Tech Dirt directly addresses topics like civil rights, privacy, copyright, DRM and the internet.
Tech the Future – www.techthefuture.com
Tech the Future topics are related to technology, science and society. The website has very interesting articles which go further than just recent news.
Wikipedia – en.wikipedia.org
For quick fact checking Wikipedia is a very good website. It is always important though to double-check with an additional source.
Errin Spelling – errinspelling.wordpress.com
In poetry there is the concise format of haikus. Once you appreciate them and start writing them you bump into people like Errin. I have learnt of Errin’s haikus through Twitter. If ever you need ideas for seventeen syllables, Errin shows off what you can do with them. Yes, some of her haikus are weird and I appreciate that. Creativity tends to lead to weird things.
John – storytimewithjohn.com
This blog is one of the quirky ones. So quirky that I sometimes have to check it out because John has a sense of humour I appreciate. On WordPress this blog is varied in content and John’s style really works for the content he posts. I really appreciate this blog when I have the time to read a bit more.
