And don’t be selfish, send me your favorites.

    For political/policy stuff, my favorites are talkingpointsmemo.com and matthewyglesias.com. TPM is more of a news aggregator run by former center-left journalists; Matt Yglesias is a recent harvard grad who is ridiculously smart and interesting. The New Republic’s group blog, the Plank, is also very good.

    Tech: Gizmodo.com or Engadget.com. Both great, and cover similar stuff.
    Left-wing Politics: DailyKos.com. Great coverage of the elections, but sometimes can be too much.
    I ‘love’ NYT: Most Emailed. Keeps me from having to troll through all the sections to see what other people care about.
    postsecret.blogspot.com: great community art project. Updated weekly. Go check it out just to see what it’s all about, but very touching, funny, moving, thoughtful.
    http://fakesteve.blogspot.com/: Funny. Fake blog of Steve Jobs. If you’re into Apple or Steve you will be amused (but probably not for the average computer user)
    ft.com: Great articles usually written about a day later than reuters, but with a bit more analysis. Most of the articles are free, even though the site includes a paid section.
    drudgereport.com: news before it’s available anywhere else…most of the time.
    and last but not least, digg.com: AWESOME must have RSS feed. users submit links, and then members vote them up or down. Once they’re voted up enough and reach the front page, you get a new article in your RSS reader. Can take a day or two to reach you if it’s very public news, but access to *tons* of stuff you would never find otherwise.
