I, like millions of people around the globe, love Ted.com. Ted.com is centered on ideas worth spreading. TED is short for technology, entertainment and design, and the site combines the best minds in these disciplines to share insight and wisdom. As their web site states, “we believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world."  TEDtalks are the go-to spot for a quick burst of inspiration and brain juice.



Having been an economics major in college, I am naturally drawn to economist.com. The website, as well as its magazine subscription, provide great insight into current economic and political news occurring around the globe. The Economist is the only magazine I currently subscribe to because of their useful and interesting articles. The website and magazine’s stories delve deep into the heart of current issues and explain the large, underlying implications that may result. The website also has a free mobile app that provides sample articles. I find it to be very helpful to read these articles while on the way to work in the mornings.


I am very passionate about technology and understanding the significant paradigm shifts that will soon impact our society. Wired.com provides an excellent place for me to discover more information about current and future technologies, and the revolutionary transitions that may accompany them. Their articles are incredibly informative and challenge readers to find new, innovative solutions to today’s current problems. I sometimes find myself lost on this site for hours.


I got turned onto TechCrunch after going to New York City for Internet Week in New York several years ago. TechCrunch’s reach and coverage of start-up technology makes it a staple site for spotting new, trending technology and business incubation ideas.  It also provides techie insight on strategy moves by the biggest players when they roll out new services.
