It’s not that I don’t spend enough time on the ‘net (good gourd!), but I’ve noticed lately that I keep visiting the same handful of sites over and over: The Times and the WaPo for news; CuteOverload and ICanHazCheezburger for blood pressure regulation; Pandagon and Shakesville for progressive/feminist stuff…you get the idea. Unclutterer. Sociological Images. The Chronicle of Higher Education.
It’s kind of like I’ve forgotten that the internet is, for better and worse, an endless trough of options. Of course, I’m always overwhelmed by too many options. The Dude will ask if he can pick up something for me from the library, for example, and without looking directly at a list I’ve already made (an oh, do I have lists), I’m completely baffled by infinite choice.
So, obviously, you read us–and thank you so much for that. And as such, you’ve already proved your smarts and excellent taste, so I feel like asking for recommendations of other great sites to add to my roster is a no-brainer.
So, today’s FFT: what sites do you love the best? Check the most? Can’t live without? Are there any things you read that deserve wider circulation? Give us names, or links, if you got ‘em, but know that those might send your comment into the mod queue, so please be patient if it doesn’t pop up right away.
And thanks in advance!
