I've often been asked for a complete list of the sources from which TBTF is constructed. They have historically been email sources, though I have come increasingly to rely on Web-based news summaries and Web logs for story ideas. The other principal sources of inspiration are the TBTF Irregulars, other readers' correspondence, my own Net explorations, and my consulting business.
I still read most of these sources regularly. The ones that are no longer current on my desktop are shown in grey type.
If you are interested in exploring the email sources, sign up and try them out. You may find that for a particular list postings are too frequent or relevance is not sufficiently high for your interests. I don't try to characterize the lists' volume or signal-to-noise ratio here because (a) both tend to change over time and (b) your needs are different than mine.
Those sources that are most consistently relevant to the territory TBTF covers are marked with a pucker .
Here are the rules, with examples, for a number of popular news destinations.
Current Net news
Unlike many of the other sources listed here, these are Web-based.
