Schedule What to Read

Sometimes the hardest part of actually reading is finding what to read. Here are a few of my favorite places on the web. As you build your list of favorite sites, keep in mind that the longer the list, the more time it will take to look everywhere. I would suggest that you find a few good sources and stick to them. By all means, keep looking for better websites that give more information or better presentation.


Portals and news centric publications are a great place to go everyday to see if there is anything new. Usually there is and you will find out about trends before you colleagues.

Staying current on the technology you need to do your job to the fullest is not an easy task. We are bombarded daily with problems that need to be solved immediately. Take some time and consider the method you have for keeping current and up-to-date in your field. I would venture to say that if you are stuck to the printed word, you are missing out on a world that is rich in information and easy to manage.
