Updated - What I Read First or RSS Recommendations

Last night I was a guest on Higher Ed Live (the archive is now up). During the show someone in the chat asked if I could write a blog post listing my favorite sources for discovering new things in educational technology and technology in general. I've written two of those lists in the past, but they change somewhat over time so here is my new list of the blogs and websites I go to first in my RSS reader.

The strictly tech blogs.
Read Write Web
TechCrunch
Make Use Of
Mashable Not so much anymore as it has become cluttered with lots of posts about things like "the best cat videos of the week."
