    I don't regularly read any sites. I hang out on IRC Freenode in a wide range of tech channels. Hard to miss anything important that way.

    Freenode is still excellent for tech folks to share information. And a lot of old school people on there, so they know quite a bit.

    Honestly it's pretty tough, between US-Cert warnings, B-Side newsletters, NEI, company email warnings, I get bombarded with emails almost every day, I do have a job to do, really can't read them all.
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.
