  1. How do you sincerely apologize to someone and really accept the blame? Curt Schilling sets a great standard by his “Public Apology” post on his blog 38 Pitches. This is really a wonderful example of taking responsibility for one’s mistakes.
  2. SSW, Superior Software for Windows, an Australian software company, has a collection of great articles at SSW Rules related to project management, software products and coding standards. Some of the popular articles there are great resources.
  3. I have been reading a lot of Paul Graham’s old articles recently. He does not have a feed, but one is available at http://www.aaronsw.com/2002/feeds/pgessays.rss. I subscribed to that, starred all the articles in Google Reader and have been reading them when I get a chance. His post on the unpopularity of nerds is a must-read. If you have teenage children, tell them to read it.{Aside: Google Blogoscoped has an interview with Aaron Swartz who created the feed.}
  4. If I was only allowed to read one website to learn about blogging, the site I would go to would be ProBlogger. Although written primarily for bloggers who wish to monetize their blogs, it contains a lot of useful advice on how to make the content friendly to readers and search engines alike. But above all, the author, Darren Rowse, conducts a really friendly dialog with his audience, instead of talking down to them. Really first-class.
  5. I am increasingly disappointed at the home page of Rediff, which used to be my primary source of India news. But now, it is incredibly cluttered with advertisements all over the page. Nowadays, I just use Google News and Cricinfo. Anybody has any suggestions for a good looking India portal site, please add to the comments section.
