BBC Click

good zero-background-experience starter place; read it for a couple of
months and you'll slowly start to get a gist of what's going on in the
non-fuddyduddy world.

Ars Technica ( is for the more advanced, but if
you're a good reader and a quick learner, it will get you up to speed on
the cutting edge of stuff.

I'd recommend reading both each day. Bit like learning a foreign
language, at first it'll make no sense, but after a few months you'll be
telling other people stuff they didn't know.... :-)
