Lately because there is so much garbage on TV i have turned to the internet for my entertainment... No not porn.....all the time.. I recently got heavily into RSS feeds, twitter, digg, podcasting, etc. Through my e-mail browser I get the lastest headlines via RSS, I skim through, find the headlines that interest me which takes me to one of my new favorite All-In-One info sites Digg.com.
I'm a sucker for new technology, but most aren't, Twitter is one of those services that you either love or love to hate. I have found it useful in keeping up with new and old friends to see what kinds of things they do in their day to day life when you're not on email or the phone. We don't often know the small details about our friends and family but twitter helps me understand that people actually do have lives and they do things like eat at their favorite restaurant or go to the movies and are often compelled to put that info out there, just so you know.
One of the other things that I have found masses of enjoyment in is Podcasts. I prefer video podcasts, but the audio ones are cool too. You can find just about anything that interests you in podcast form and through itunes...ITS FREE. Some of my faves are geekbrief, diggnation, the feed (G4tv), photoshop user tv, and anderson cooper 360. I also like to keep my ear to the streets in the UK and there are more than plenty of great podcasts from across the water.
What do you do during TV's off season when heroes is months away?
