In the past I may have resented the term ‘Geek‘, but since it has become more mainstream I find myself using resources targeted at Geeks and informationworkers.
Here they are:
- Geekbrief.tv – Shiny Happy Tech News. A very information rich, professionally produced vodcast by Cali Lewis. A must see for Gadget-geeks.
- Bright.nl – Innovative (Dutch) Lifestyle Magazine. Good news articles and product review vodcasts.
- Lifehacking.nl – Dutch Bloggers with useful articles about Lifehacking. Working smarter instead of harder. Lifehackers frequently use technology and systems to create shortcuts for redundant or unnecessary tasks in their life.
More about Lifehacking: Lifehacker.com and Life Hack (Wikipedia)
- Wired.com – Wired Magazine is a strong brand for Geeks both online and offline. Wired reported and maybe even set many trends in the past. Sections include: Cars 2.0, Culture, Entertainment, Gadgets, Gaming, How-To, Med Tech, Multimedia, Politics, Product Reviews, Science, Software, Tech Biz, Tech Jobs, and Dual Perspectives.
