Science and sci-fi geeks come out of the government closet!
What books, magazines (print or online), blogs, etc. do you read or have you read recently to stay up to date on technology? Or, if you have some interesteing podcasts to share, please do.
And what do you read or listen to just for fun?
Looking for some good resources for information and where to focus my time. Oh, and more fun too!
The way I've been staying up to date on technology for the past 10 years or so is by being part of DC WebWomen. It's the most helpful group of people I've ever known. Although it started as an offshoot of Webgrrls International, you don't have to do anything involving the Web to be a member. If you post asking for help with an Excel spreadsheet, or something like that, you'll get as many helpful responses as if your question involves SQL or SEO. There's the tech list, and there's also a social list, for anything involving the rest of life. The only requirement is that you be female. Go to http://www.dcwebwomen.org to join - it's free.
For Tech and public administration news: I have a personalized Google start page that combines saved searches, a Twitter feed, and Google Reader to keep me up to date.
For fun: Mostly history, philosophy, and science. Some fiction with a leaning toward science fiction and mysteries.
For technology, mainly the This Week In Tech podcasts, Slashdot, EWeek, Computerworld, and Networkworld.
For fun, I'm reading mostly fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure, though I'll be reading Premiere Pro CS5 Classroom in a Book, as I will be using that program soon (for fun). Music: Classic Rock, Oldies, 80s, 90s, New Wave, Dark Wave, EBM, Celtic Rock.
