As someone who does a lot of technology consulting and prototyping, keeping up with new technologies is an important part of my work so my sources tend to be pretty technology-based.

Here are My Favourite Tipples:

  • Pocket: This is a "read later" app which stops me from falling down endless internet rabbit holes when interesting articles or resources cross my path. It supports different devices, offline reading, tags and Text-To-Speech plus there's a whole bunch of integrations (browser bookmarklets, IFTTT recipes) that make it easy to bookmark articles and create a distraction-free reading list from tweets, RSS feeds and websites.
  • The LSE Impact blog: This provides a steady stream of high quality posts about research impact, engagement and a lot of the tools inherent in research. Even if you're not in academia, it's worth keeping an eye on to catch great posts about big (and small) data, publishing, professional development, social media tools and lots of other topics.
  • DBW Daily: A lot of the work I do with ebook development, publishing technology and via Biblio intersects with the vast world of digital publishing so this daily update newsletter is a helpful summary. It includes the latest technological developments for the publishing sector and interviews with startups in this space.
