Weekend Reading

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a bookstore to pick up a book to read anymore, solely because that there is just so much to read online these days. However, unlike books, there is much less quality control on the net, and thus I tend to be even more picky in the things that I read. The following are a few I’ve picked that I’ll like to share:

This is the blog of Marc Andreessen of the Netscape fame. Post-Netscape, he has been founded Opsware (which was acquired by HP) and Ning, a social-network creation site. If you’re interested in the details of how startups, entrepreneur-ism, and his thoughts on the capital market, his blog will be an insightful read.

Brazen Careerist
As the author of Brazen Careerist, Penelope writes mostly about things related to career building, chatting about issues related to the workplace, lots of it by example. She sometimes talks about issues that are personal to her life as well, which gives a rather genuine feel to her blog than most.

Sudden Debt
While this guy writes anonymously about the market gyrations on Wall Street, he sounded like someone who is either and insider or pretty senior in the financial market. If you are interested in learning what the next major market pitfall might be, this blog will be for you, besides the fact that he has a wicked sense of humour!

Coding Horror
Who says that Computer Science can’t be fun? Jeff Atwood, who writes on his blog called ‘Coding Horror’, deals with mostly fun stuffs related to Computer Science and IT in general. One of the sites that makes an entertaining read.

If there are any good quality blogs that you enjoy reading, feel free share what your favourite genre of blogs that you read, leave a URL as a comment, but no spammy, ad-laden sites please!

And have a good weekend read!
