Holiday Reading: Free eBooks and Good Blogs

Hello again!

'Tis the season of giving, and hopefully most of you will have a little more time to do some reading, so I thought this would be a good time to share the following links with you.

Free eBooks

In the last few months we've seen a bunch of good free eBooks come out. I'm not sure how this trend started, but I suspect this TechZingLive interview with Jason Cohen might have something to do with it. :)

Here are four eBooks I think you might like, which are all free:

Do you know any other good eBooks along these lines? Don't be shy and post the links in the comments if you do! :)

My favorite non-tech blogs

I follow A LOT of blogs, mostly tech and business stuff. It's all good and useful, but the echo-chamber makes me a bit queasy after a while.

That's when I like to look at these:

  • Letters of Note - these are always entertaining
  • Today and Tomorrow - crazy digital art, designy furniture and artsy animated GIFs (remember those?)
  • Strange Maps - for map nerds like me
  • The Big Picture on boston.com. A view of our World through gorgeous, always though-provoking pictures
  • Indexed - I just started following this one recently. Very smart stuff, plus I have a soft spot for hand-drawn things ;)
  • Minimal - not at the same level of the ones above, but quick to read

What are your favorite "escape from the technosphere" blogs?
