Now that it's officially Friday ...

Here is a list long of Friday TECHWHRL questions. I hope they spur some input.

1. What newsletters do you subscribe to (technical, language-related, misc.)?

Techwr-l, STC-SIGs (Info Design, Management, and Online), Alfa Romeo Owner's Club, World-Wide Words, This Is True

2. What sites do you bookmark and access regularly?

New York Times (the only place I actually pay $ for - to get the crosswords),,,, Boing Boing, MSNBC's Clicked blog,

3. What diversions do you subscribe to or regularly access? How much time a day do you feel is justified in accessing/reading these kinds of things? (A former team leader suggested 5 minutes for every hour.)

See above for list of sites. Time spent is directly proportional to how interesting today's work stuff is. Averages about an hour a day spread out over 14 hours.

4. And perhaps to put everything in proportion, how many hours a week were you hired to work and do you actually work?

I suppose I was hired for between 37.5 and 40 hours a week, and I put in between 35 and 45 a week. Working from home I think I'm generally much more productive than I ever was in the office.

My 2¢,
