"My Internet" vs "The Internet"

The Internet is full of great content and great websites but I have realised recently that I only really go to about 15-20 websites with any sort of regularity and probably about 30 overall, so "my internet" is considerably smaller than "the internet"

So for any readers of this blog, I ask that for the good of my brain, and anyone else who cares to look, that you suggest 2 or 3 decent sites you think are worthwhile.

My three
1. http://www.boards.ie/ -
basically forums on any issue you could imagine wanting to talk about, be it
your college, favorite sport, TV show etc

2. www.ted.com/tedtalks - videos from the
annual TED conference, had great videos from Richard Dawkins on Atheism to Jane
Goodall on chimps. Hours of real education

3. www.digg.com - A website that has blog entrys
from around the world on any subject you can think of, you can also post your
entrys on this site, and people from around the world will have access to your
posts in a relevent category.

I recently finished the internet. A picture of Bill gates appears with his thumbs up and congatulations flashing on screen and you get to enter your initials in.

You should try "Stumble Upon". It has pretty much the same content as Digg but it's built into your browser.

hhmm, here's my three i guess:

1. http://www.homestarrunner.com/

Funniest cartoons ever, check out the Strong Bad Emails and Teen Girl Squad.


2. http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/

Basically one of the best music sites around, they have so many good writers and are completely unbiased in terms of genre, i owe a lot of my love of music to this site.

3. http://www.allsp.com/

So much South Park!!!

Hi, Nice stuff. I found a cool news widget for our blogs at www.widgetmate.com. Now I can show the latest news on my blog. Worked like a breeze.

www.espn.com - caters for any and all sports, some brilliant journalism to boot. if you don't like sport....hard luck on your low life expectancy....
