One thing I’m worried about is getting caught in a bubble–reading too much of the same basic sources until my worldview no longer resembles the actual world. Just because of what I’m actually trying to learn, tech and public relations, I find that I read a disproportionate amount of industry blogs. You should distrust tech people (or at least view their work with some skepticism) for the same reason you shouldn’t pay too close attention to the words of actors. Look, you remember how these people were in high school. You well-adjusted friends didn’t suddenly get into acting when they turned 25, it’s the same basic dorks from the drama club. Just like now, the industry people who pretend they are the cultural gatekeepers of the internet, were in fact, the nerd from high school who didn’t have a clue about human interaction. What’s changed? Probably not much.

So, I’m looking for new sites to read. I’ve got a solid 100 blogs in my Reader, and still looking for more. I use regularly too–for those stellar, one-hit-wonder kind of article. What do you guys recommend? Who should I read on culture, politics, sports, comedy, entertainment, law, education, lifestyle, ANYTHING.

Post suggestions on my comments section, drop me an email at [email protected] or add me on and tag me worthwhile reads. I’ll start doing the same here with good sites I find.
