Good blogs to read for tech startups

I was recently asked what are the sites or the blogs you keep up to date with. I will not add the solely programming sites I follow.  Happy to take other recommendations to add to the list 🙂

First without a doubt subscribe to the Startup Digest

hacker news is very popular but it is a fire hose of information –

Knowledge Sites

InfoQ – I love InfoQ they have great videos, great tips on how to handle specific technical issues

Smashing magazine – For design it is the king of the hill –

Mozilla Developer Network – My favourite reference site for web stuff

W3Tech – Which technologies are in favour – – just in case you do not know – do not just watch the videos you thinking might be interesting, find ones that may challenge or add another perspective to your life..

DZone – The odd good technical article –

News Sites
