"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro" -Hunter Thompson, 1971.
Here are some of my favorite web sites. Under the table, you will find a further explanation of the criteria behind them.
|Web Site||Owner||Reason to visit often|
|Tomalak's Realm||Lawrence Lee||Outstanding filter for articles on Web commerce|
|Arts and Letters Daily||Denis Dutton||Outstanding filter for articles on science, literature, and politics|
|Jakob Nielsen||Jakob Nielsen||Interesting opinions about Web site design and Net technology|
|Edward Yardeni||Edward Yardeni||Macroeconomic analysis and forecasts|
|Paul Krugman||Paul Krugman||Distinguished (former?) economist's NY Times columns, every Sunday and Wednesday|
|Brad DeLong||Brad DeLong||An economist's interesting observations on the Internet, technology, and economic growth|
|The Edge||John Brockman||Long interviews with science and technology "pop stars"|
|The Scene||Virginia Postrel||Observations on various topics, primarily technology and social policy|
|InstaPundit||Greg Reynolds||Conservative Law Professor's manic weblog|
Some other sites worth noting:
Politically, the list is eclectic. Obviously, the freepers and NRO are on the right. Postrel is a feminist conservative, which comes out to be approximately libertarian. DeLong and Krugman represent the left. Krugman's Democratic screeds are so strident that I must say that I strongly preferred his MIT home page, back when he was an economist. His new home page resides at Princeton.
A site that declined and fell off my initial list is the GBN book club. What I used to say is that its book recommendations fit me very well. But nowadays, with Amazon's listmania I can get book recommendations relatively easily at amazon.com.
