I’ve just realized i’ve got more followers on Twitter than i think i’d ever have on the Cuene.com blog (which, by the way, goes way back in various forms to 95, when i got the first website up and running). I’ve been dabbling since it came out, but now, since all the best links come through twitter, i’m going to finally commit. Follow me at http://twitter.com/jcuene

- www.scripting.com – Dave Winer’s site, full of piss and vinegar
- www.techcrunch.com – the best, freshest update on "Web 2.0" companies from Mike Arrington, a VC in CA.
- www.37signals.com/svn – the blog from 37signals, the Chicago based purveyors of simplicity, complexity-hiding, "get real"-ness

- www.pussyranch.net – Not always safe for work, but really f’n funny and smart.
- www.whatdoiknow.org – almost everyday, updates or not
