The main sources of the information I consume, in no particular order, are:
Information sources on the Internet:
- The Conversation; particularly on environment, science and technology;
- Google news alerts; I get Mr Google to keep me up with the subjects that interest me;
- RenewEconomy helps to keep me up to date with developments in renewable energy;
- The Guardian;
- Sydney Morning Herald;
- Wikipedia; I've found it to be remarkably reliable considering that it can be edited by anyone;
- Facebook; Facebook itself is not to be trusted, it operates under its own agenda, it will use us, it uses me. But if you, like me, use Facebook it's important to have Facebook Friends who will post interesting, informative and reliable subjects;
- The Internet generally; I often search for writing on subjects that interest me;
- Aeon; A "digital magazine, publishing some of the most profound and provocative thinking on the web".
Many of the articles published are very good;
- I have many specific sources that I look to for information on specific subjects.
Information sources other than the Internet:
- I have written on the things and people that have influenced me
elsewhere on these pages;
- The Drum on ABC TV, well informed discussion on the current hot topics;
- Radio and TV news and programs, mostly the ABC, almost never the Murdoch Empire;
- Books; libraries and from shops;
- Newspapers: mainly local: The
Yorke Peninsula Country Times; I occasionally read the Adelaide Advertiser or The Australian (both Murdoch) at a coffee shop where I don't have to contribute financially to Rupert, which would be entirely against my principles.
It is important to at least seriously consider providing some financial support for those of your information sources that may need it.
is very good.
