Daily Reading Materials – Part 3

The final post in this series of sources of information that I recommend. As most of the readers of this blog would agree, most of the information we take in now in 2009, comes from the internet. Fittingly, today I will list the websites/blogs that I seek daily for news, information, and more.

Websites that I read daily-


Just thought I would get this one out of the way…

Their title explains it the best: “What people are clicking on today.” And in even simpler terms- Stories that have made it to the front page of digg, delicious, reddit, etc.


Stay informed on everything related to social media. They often provide comprehensive insight into the socialsphere.


Seriously, how can you be on the web and not read TechCrunch? This is one of the most read blogs in the world.


This is also a magazine, and they cover mostly stories connecting business and technology.


Really cool information on the latest startup companies on the web.

Hacker News –

Nope, it’s not what it sounds like. This is a real quality stream of news related mostly to startup companies.


I like their tag line: “Technically social.” They cover all news related to companies making money via social media. Such as virtual currency networks.

If you have any recommendations for a website that belongs on that list, feel free to leave a comment; I’d be happy to add it.

Hopefully this series of my daily reading materials will keep you busy, and better informed. Thanks!

Daily Reading Materials – Part 2

Yeah, that title is kind of an oxymoron, considering magazines are published once a week, month, or two months, etc.

Magazines are probably my favorite sources of information, since the articles are the most in depth, and they are usually complemented by nice little graphics to understand the issue. 🙂

Here are my favorite magazines:

Fast Company


Business and internet technology, wow. Does it get much better?



The issues mostly highlight successful startup companies that are moving and shaking.



Wired keeps an update of all things digital; anything about how emerging technology is impacting the way we live.

Fortune Small Business


Are you are planning on starting your own business? Read this magazine.

The Economist


The #1 source for any political news, and worldwide issues. This magazine is a must read to stay in touch with global trends and problems.

Those magazines will keep you anxious for each issue, be sure to pick up one of them. They are worth reading for sure.

Next up is Websites of course. Check back tomorrow to see the websites that I read daily.

Daily Reading Materials – Part 1

This is the first part of a 3 day series listing my favorite daily media sources. Enjoy!

Today’s medium is the newspaper! To be honest, this is the medium that I read the least, but they are definitely part of my daily reading materials. Those few minutes of down time while eating breakfast allow me to gain a small bit of insight of what’s happening in the world through newspapers. With that said, here are the newspapers that I take a look at daily:

The Wall Street Journal


The WSJ is probably the most respected source of business and financial news… anywhere.

The New York Times


The NYT has top-notch coverage of all breaking news, and expansive coverage of events throughout the world.

The Star-Ledger


My surrounding area news. Always interesting to see whats going on.

Tomorrow is magazines, check back soon.
