The Internet Tourbus

Every week I get an email from a duo tandem in America calling their team the Internet Tourbus. That’s Patrick Crispen and Bob Rankin for you. They send a newsletter/tutorial where you get a lot of tips on how tos, the whys, the wheres in cyberspace and in computing all written in a straight forward, sensible, lucid, mostly non techie jargon prose. They’re quite funny too. They used to have this Southern word for the day and tracked the adventures of the power-line addicted squirrels of the University of Alabama. Every week there is a different topic where they explain details of new things in computing – from hardware issues to viruses to the latest Internet browser. They’re one of my choice sources of information especially if the techie sites are not making any sense to me and I just want a basic explanation of whatever I am interested in. They always put in links to other sites with more in-depth details.

You can subscribe to their newsletter through their website:
Internet Tourbus. There you can also peruse their FAQs and archives of articles going all the way back to 1995 when they first started.

So if you want to read something technically informative but non brow furrowing, go and subscribe or visit their site.

masubukan nga din. ako naman eh matagal ng subscriber ng www.stratfor.com i receive daily "intelligence" briefs, may assessment pang kasama. Stratfor, by the way was the first intel organization na nagpredict na ma-o-oust si Erap, and startfor lang ang nakapagbigay ng intelligent analysis on its prediction re Erap's ouster.. try mo mag subscribe if you are into "spy-world"..

Hi DocEmer and BongK: Give it a shot, email lang naman yung pinadadala nila about 2 times a week. If you don't like the subject in the issue all you had to do is press the delete key. Abt Stratfor, I do peek in there once in a while.
