Scott Mitchell asks on his blog what are the sites you can’t live without. Here’s mine:
- Outlook Web Access – my e-mail
- CNN / MSNBC / BBC News (I am a kind of a news junkie)
- Gizmodo / Engadget
- Baby photo sites of my kid and my niece
For some reason, Gizmodo and Engadget are listed here as sites I frequently visit in IE instead of in an aggregator. The presentation is better as HTML sure, but I think it’s more of an efficiency in scanning kind of thing. All the images of the toys are downloaded at first hit, versus having my aggregator pull them on selection of each item. Autoblog is the opposite for me. This one I subscribe to and only pull the items of manufacturers I like.
Also, a quick rant about domestic news web sites… Last week the nightmare situation in Russia should have been top news across the world. Terrorists take over school, wth. CNN ran Bush accepting the nomination in the number one spot. At least the BBC got it right.
