    You've opened your browser, where do u go?

    (Not including your mail client and forget facebook/myspace/Amazon etc.)

    For me it's straight to and then whitechapel (no shit, I think its the best place on the web right now, some of these threads are so interesting and informative).
    the Guardian
    CBR/Newsarama/ Broken Frontier
    Aint it Cool

    obviously my favs are crammed with great links, but these are my bread and butter.

    Usually I check my Google Reader, which, after a night of sleep, still takes a good 15 minutes to plow through, check my bank accounts, then usually head here. Then I do a lot of random poking around, the occasional focused research, and then I attempt to interact with real people for a while. People not on the other end of a wire, y'know?

    And then I come back here.
  1.  (2401.3) ----three daily comics by a husband and wife that are usually hilarious comic done by a friend of mine that is usually good, but sometimes boring. yknow, like life.... --vertigo writers msg board. new and can use some people around more, but its cool for talking about sandwiches with dave lapham and shit like that. ---local hardcore board

    nwsarama/ cbr-- comics sonnnnnnn ----video game blog that has started scooping most other news sites

    I don't go anywhere. RSS means everything comes to ME. Far too much to list but some of the more interesting things are...

    Pink Tentacle
    Brass Goggles
    English Russia
    Wooster Collective
    The Daily Puppy

    I usually do my google reader and catch up on twitter with whatever twitter app is most handy. Google reader is usually full of lifehacker and io9 things early in the morning.

    I often hit up these forums, as well as the privateer press forums, my WoW guild forums and the forums of whatever Con I'm hitting next.

    I have all my RSS feeds in Google Home. In named tabs. I hit this first thing in the morning, scan new email, check weather.

    Daily : Email - Calendar - Weather - Boyfriend's Blog - Freakangels - Penny Arcade - Kukuburi - Fafblog - TV is My Pacifier

    Might check soulseek for recent downloads if I had it up overnight.

    Whitechapel doesn't have an RSS for main topics (that I know of?) so I check threads of interest. Probably come back sometime in the evening when I have more time.

    Other Google tabs throughout the day:
    News, Mostly Bad : All kinds of news and politics sites I don't look at when I'm feeling fragile. Includes RISKS digest, local news, FDA recalls, SecurtyFocus news
    Blogs : Neatorama, Making Light, Schneier,, et al.
    Shopping : Some daily deals sites. Ignoring this one while I am broke.
    Art & Design : Various art resources I never seem to read

    's about it.

    Webcomics (some variation of Shortpacked!, Penny Arcade, Ugly HIll, XKCD, PVP, Starslip Crisis, etc.)
    Sometimes Facebook, never MySpace
    then I poke around for news, blogs, Grinding, all that stuff.
  3.  (2401.9) is my homepage - on IE or FF. I like being blasted first thing - better to get it over and done with.

    Google Reader
    ning - I've three or four I skinny dip in.

    Those above are always open while I am online. Yes, seven screens always.

    Lately, I've also had open as well.

    And If I'm feeling especially cheeky (which is pretty much daily, now that school is out) I'll also run simultaneously:
    Another Forum (comics again)
    Maybe Another Forum (horses)
    And Another Forum (draft horses)

    Nevermind I have WC radio on instead of youtube. Or the 4am. Beyond those listed, I don't go anywhere else (myspace, when I remember) - they come to me, just as alwayscrashing said. Love RSS.

    Home page tabs set to:
    The forums of Questionable Content (the music forum there is very good)
    Whitechapel (I tend to lurk a lot)
    Penny Arcade
    Rock, Paper, Shotgun (gaming blog by Kieron Gillen and others, most excellent)
    The Onion
    Achewood (my favourite webcomic)
    Tiny Mix Tapes (music blog)

    After going through those, I tend to hit up various newspapers and political blogs.
  4.  (2401.11)
    gmail, bbc news, dodgy websites that you can download stuff from, flickr, here, then wherever takes my fancy
  5.  (2401.12)
    I use Bloglines so that I can check feeds whether at home or work - or elsewhere.
    Many, many design blogs and news feeds - mainly graphics stuff and web design - plus news feeds, lifehacker, science news, movie news, etc.
    Whitechapel I usually save for the evening.
    Gmail is usually in the mix somewhere.
    Flickr when I remember.

    non-social networking sites:

    We Make Money Not Art
    Film is not dead it just smells funny
    Restaurant Widow
    Cat and Girl - OK, not daily, but every time there's an update. This is as close to online loyalty as I get.
  6.  (2401.14)
    after my Flickr page I go to:

    Boing Boing
    Cartoon Brew

    The first half hour of my day is spent combing through my lists and lists of bookmarks of all shapes and sizes. Most of the links I visit daily are on the links page on my site, I visit everything there except for all the music links (those I visit once a week maybe).

    I have a few other new gems I'm checking out that should get added soon.

    Gotta hit these places every morning - in no particular order:
    • CommentTimeMay 28th 2008
    I keep all my tabs in Firefox open and then once a week, I go through and tag and/or close. The first six tabs are almost always the same though: iGoogle, LJ,,, Whitechapel, Flickr.

    My iGoogle is first port of call: can see my twitter, the weather, my calendar, my google reader, remember the milk and my gmail. Once that's all been dealt with, I work my way through the rest of the tabs.
    • CommentTimeMay 28th 2008
    I just threw everything I wanted into Google Reader. Now I just check that, my email, and occasionally here. Sometimes I do facebook and roam other sites as well, but not usually.
