So after more than a year since I last posted a very short list of the websites I most frequent and why I think they are awesome I thought I would do an update and add a few more that I just can’t live without. To just quickly recap, here is the list in no specific order(read more at https://strik3r2.wordpress.com/2011/08/17/websites-im-in-love-with/)
Now for something new ::
I think I am late to this, but seriously Phillip DeFranco is FUNNY. I know I know as an Australian my connection to anything he says or does is minimal, and that I will probably upset my girlfriend for even mentioning the campaign “the nation is sexy”, But Dammit I love the witty and often not so comedy reflected in the news. Also with a sign off that includes ‘I love your faces” How could you not want to watch what phil has to say.
Not much really needs to be said about XKCD. Its an awesome web comic that I have to read fairly often. Always has something new and interesting, and is quite often very relevant.
Hak5 is a really IP TV show. With very humble roots, Hak5 is about hardcore nerd heaven. With great topics about hacking and cracking this tv show will keep nerds like me happy for many many hours on end. If you have never watched the show before I Highly recommend going back to the beginning and watching the seasons through.
Will thats about It for this post. Only three new sites, but hey I don’t get out much even from my own desk!
I would really love to hear from you, whether your a regular at these websites or you have any suggestions for my bookmarks bar that are great visits.

I have a list of websites that I visit habitually that don’t include social media websites. This habit has at times been a problem, I can’t remember how many times I was late to class because of a new blog post on a website that I just had to read. Today I thought I would share these with you. Maybe you could suggest some that you like to visit habitually.
I love revision3. Plain and simple video content that’s fresh and original AND technology related that is rare to find. There are some great independent publishes that use revision3 such as hak5 and Geekbeat.tv. Basically Revision3 is a web publishing tool for video content. Think publish as an author would publish a book (means you only get ‘good’ content and all in HD content).
Net tuts is a great website which publishes blog post tutorials, web development articles and inspirational type posts. They are insightful and good reading (as well a watching). Part of the Envato family, You know that your going to get good quailty posts 2 or 3 times a week. I also like reading other tuts+ websites such as webdesign and wp (wordpress). One of the things that I really like about these websites is they often gives me ideas about completely different concepts.
Quick simple posts, 5 or 6 a day, often including videos. The main point of the website is to collect together cool ‘hacks’, usually hardware related combinations of components to achieve a specific task. The website is great for inspiration.

Ok, this is a little bit of a shameless plug, it is my dad’s photo stream on flickr. He is a great amateur photographer and budding professionally, and while he does not have a website yet (I’m working on it), he updates his stream quite often and it is a great source of inspiration and enjoyment.
This list is not all my favourite websites, but they are the ones that I visit the most. I would love some suggestion of websites that I should visit and of course why 😛
