The Morning Read
A while back I thought it would be a good idea to list the sites I tend to look at every morning—my morning read. Then, or so the thought went, if I couldn’t think of a good description of why I read the site, I could take it out of my list and not have to worry about it. The sites aren’t out of the list (yet), but I have noted that some don’t have a good description. Maybe they will go someday.
First, I read the comics of the day for a bit of levity:
- Questionable Content
- Daily Comics – An assortment of comics from the Houston Chronicle. I started with them back in the mid-nineties when they were about the only site that had the funny pages online.
And then take a look at some of the news and opinion out in the world:
- Daring Fireball – All things macintosh and otherwise interesting
- Greg in the Desert – Since his site was named “For the H*ll of It”
- The Unofficial Apple Weblog
And then there are the RSS feeds (courtesy of My Yahoo!). I keep thinking of switching to a better feed reader, but that always seems like too much work:
- Rands in Repose – Thoughts on Engineering Management.
- SharkTank – Funny stories of IT with a bunch of crazies posting comments.
- HawkWings – A site dedicated to Mail on the mac, which unfortunately has not been publishing in quite a while.
- 43 Folders – All things Merlin
- Doug’s AppleScripts for iTunes – A reminder that I need to gte back to editing my AppleScripts. Unfortunately, they got to the point where they were “good enough” and I have mostly given up on them.
- Mac OSX Hints – Full of hints that I never have the time to implement, but I still try to scan the headlines occasionally.
And, on Sunday I check out the new cards at Post Secret, to make me feel a little better and help me realize my life isn’t nearly as screwed up as it could be.
