I admit that this post is mostly to just get something new atop my blog, since I update it so infrequently. But someone last week asked me what I read every day/week.
I'd refer you back to an older post, because amazingly, those are still all on my daily reading list -- for startup industry just follow Fred Wilson, Mark Suster, Ben Horowitz, Paul Graham, and a few others.
In addition, I really enjoy reading Scott Orn's daily blog that he calls Kenny Kellogg, which I get in a daily email format. It's old school, in that he picks 1-7 links per day and sends them out. I think there's some format to it... like videos on tuesdays... and 7 reads on saturdays. But, really, I just love the filtering he does for me. I find something great in every mail.
For Seattle tech news, I like getting the daily email from GeekWire.
I also really like the daily mail from Twitter that picks stories/tweets that it thinks would be interesting to me -- again, it almost always finds a few that I really like. Yeah, I like getting emails -- that way I can read or ignore from my inbox. Else, they pile up in my feed reader.
On that note, since Google Reader shut down, I've found NewsBlur to be a nice replacement. I think Danielle Morrill made that reco. On that note, the startup-data mails from her new company, MatterMark, are excellent so far.
For regular professional updates, I like reviewing LinkedIn Connections and Nimble emails each day -- I regularly reach out to folks who I see updates on.
p.s. that photo has nothing to do with this post. It's just awesome. French bulldogs absolutely rule. If you don't agree, face it, you're an idiot.
