If you aren’t doing this already, you ought to be monitoring the Del.icio.us bookmarks of the preeminent web leaders. For instance, Steve Rubel’s feed is a good place to catch web news the day before it breaks. Normally, he’s tagging articles that will likely make the rounds in the next few hours–plus you get a glimpse into the media he’s consuming. I make this suggestion reluctantly, however, after being take aback a bit after I discovered a few people doing that to my feed.
In the spirit of the pot calling the kettle black, I stole this from Tucker’s. He’ll probably write more about it later, but in the meantime, enjoy.
