i read all of it...even the news sources i don't normally utilize, i read about. in this day and age where the media is coming at you from so many sources and technologies, news is biased and you really need to know where your information is coming from...this book helps you find that out.

There are some interesting websites in here but no real surprises. It did give me something to do for several hours online! I wonder how they confined it to 100 information sites, I have several hundred on my favorites list!
