Web Sites, Web Sites, Web Sites.

This is Mark's new Thursday Question meme. Last week's I answered on his site, but I thought I'd answer it here this week.

1. What is your favorite site to visit? (portals, blogline type readers, etc don't count)

It depends what I'm in the mood for. News.com is probably my most regular non-portalish read, along with various blogs. My regular routine is News.com, then OSNews, then MacNewsBytes, then Drudge, then my asisaid Recent Comments page, then using my blogroll to visit other blogs. If time permits, I might go to CNN after that.

2. What site is known to be popular but you just don't get it?

I'm having a hard time digging Digg. It just doesn't do anything for me.

3. What is your biggest pet peeve regarding web site design and ease of use?

Overzealous use of stuff like JavaScript menus and Flash that just get in the way of letting me get where I want to go.


4. What speed do you surf the internets [sic] at? Reality vs ISP promise.

I surf at a promised speed of 3 mbps thanks to Charter High-Speed Internet. In reality, I get somewhere between 2.5-2.8, according to Broadband Reports.

5. What web site, which is no longer with us, will you forever miss?

I'm not really sure. Just for old time's sake, I'd go back a bit farther and say I miss the odd charm of Prodigy Interactive Services.

6. What gem of site have you just found?

SAtechBlog is run not only by a guy that loves the Mac, but more importantly, is obsessed by AT&T's U-Verse (Project Lightspeed). Suddenly, I can go to just one place and keep up-to-date on this fascinating technology. :)

Hi...thanks for your kind words about my blog. Yes, it's a great deal of fun doing this. But keep in mind that I have a life and I run a PR firm serving US and Israeli tech clients. Best Regards AW

My pleasure, thanks for keeping me informed! If I ever need a PR firm, I'll keep that in mind.
