1. The New York Times
2. Twitter, for curating purposes and breaking news, with a special mention to Percolate for distilling that further.
3. Curiosity Counts/Brain Pickings
1. Twitter (filtered lists)
2. FLUD (feeds from faves like WIRED, FAST, Mashable)
3. Private Circle (IM, emails, Facebook messages)
1) The Economist, which is the most unbiased and global source I know of.
2) Wall Street Journal for their in-depth reporting of stories that aren't time sensitive.
3) BNET-CBS for the varied and useful, short articles.
Social: Tumblr, for a range of what people are reading and talking about. It's easier to digest than the tiny spurts of information on Twitter, is sortable based on categories like "news," "design," and "tech" and is visually stimulating.
Online: GOOD Mag for niche and Huffington Post for everything in between.
The traditional outlets: The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR. You still can't top solid original reporting.
I'm very hungry for high-quality info.
I use this sources:
- friends (that send me links via facebook or IM)
- twitter (via twitter app on mac)
- flipboard connected to my google reader feeds
When it comes to breaking news, Twitter has no equal. To see what stories are hot, and what the journalists care about, Muck Rack. For a quick trip around the world, The Week. For deeper dives, New York Times and Atlantic. Trends and insights, PSFK.
The ease of getting information can be as important as the quality of the news when you're on the go. I love staying informed through the BBC and NPR apps.
I also enjoy the Slashdot.org newsletter since they usually have technology related articles that are not covered by major news outlets.
I occasionally bookmark websites & mainly use e-news blasts from my favorite sources. I check the markets on CNN Money, get daily e-blasts from All Cars Electric (now part of Green Car Reports) & subscribe to multiple music related news feeds like Daily Chord & Lefsetz Letter. TMI (Too much information!)
-Twitter for varied sources on varied topics
-CNN International for a global view
-Guardian UK for the global perspective
Favourite Channels: Twitter, LinkedIn, 7PM Project (Sydney)
Favourite Sources: Mashable, Forbes, New York Times
Mine would be Feedly.
Because I read news from various sources, I need to be able to compile all of them in one location so that I can scan through.
However, if I have an iPhone or iPad, My first choice would be flipboard.
This is definitely Twitter. There is no other system that had such an impact on how news travels. It doesn't matter if it is about the Arab Spring, or a tree knocked down by a storm in my neighborhood. You will find it on twitter. Just make sure to organize lists.
For the rest I really love how Zite uses your social networks to make an aggregated presentation. And if you have enough and relevant feeds Google Reader (RSS) is still really good. I prefer using the Reeder app.
As for news websites, in my opinion the Guardian is probably the best online newspaper at this moment. Really trying to take realtime reporting and storytelling to a next level.
My RSS reader which is stuffed to the gills with great feeds like PSFK, Monocle and RTÉ radio online
1. Monocle (magazine, blog like daily bulletins, podcast)
2. France 24 (well curated English language network)
3. The people I follow on Twitter (who give good links to all the obvious publications, reports, etc that everyone else reads - ie. FastCompany, Godin, Mashable, Good, etc...)
It comes curated thru a Zite app for the iPad.
Really if you ask me, whatever Zite throws at me
