Favourite Websites

March 11th, 2010 · 3 Comments

One of the publications recently asked me for my five favourite websites. This is what I wrote and sent them.

My favourite sites represent my interests: technology, business and politics, books, India’s development, and India news.

Techmeme.com

This is an aggregator of the best of all the latest news, blogs and the buzz in the tech world. On a single page, I can see all that’s happening in the world of technology. I check a couple times daily. I wish something like this were available for Indian tech!

The Wall Street Journal and New York Times

I go to these sites for the global news coverage, technology reports and their op-eds. WSJ offers good tech insights, and also has very good centre-right leaning op-eds. They now also have an India start page. On the NYT site, I go on to the Books section, the Op-eds (somewhat centre-left views) and of course, the technology page. Much of my viewing of both these sites happens on the mobile.

Continued tomorrow.

    Aggregators have a terrific future, in this age of information overload. Techmeme is on the daily list of many, many people.
