I like this site better than Gizmodo because not only does it highlight shiny new electronic gadgets and gizmos, it also gives the reader some research news, where all of these things are ultimately born.
This site, started by and named for Ray Kurzweil (only one of the greatest innovators of all time) features news and articles written by some of the other greatest innovators of all time. What you'll get here are lots of big ideas about revolutionary technologies that are shaping the future. And because Kurzweil is synonymous with artificial intelligence, an avatar (Ramona) is your guide.
This site is really specifically for web developers, which I'm not. I'm not even friends with one. I think they all live in California. But despite that, this site is an excellent resource for computer buffs. And I know a lot of those! Everything from software to platforms to servers to humor. And the web monkey mascot is adorable.
As their short blog bio says, both of these guys have a thing for new energy. They touch on policy, personal experience and research, all related to energy. Their blogs are insightful and clever. These are the guys that came up with the idea to draft the next president's first speech on energy. I mean, come on.
Always a great source of unusual tech news and research. Doesn't get into the electronic toys. No way. This is for the hard core science and tech geek who's curious about what's going on in the lab, how it does that crazy thing it does and what the potential applications might one day be. Do we await that day with bated breath? Like the answer to a rhetorical question you bet we do.
New Scientist's tech blog, Short Sharp Science has a reputation for casting a wide net over science and pulling in some of the quirkiness news. Their technology blog is no exception. They have a lot of bloggers contributing and they all keep their entries short, pithy and skimmable.
It's the New York Times. It's David Pogue. 'Nuf said.
I love this blog by Alyssa Danigelis. She has a distinct, cheerful voice that's always funny and never preachy. She's always pointing to some cool new find or a trend where technology intersects with architecture, art, the environment and even the third world. I mean, who could resist blogs with titles like "String Cheese to the Rescue!" or "Giving Trash Talk a Good Name"?
These guys are always way out in the front, telling you about stuff way before it makes headlines. If you want to be first to know, keep your ears and eyes on this site.
