The News Stand



This is an example of a launch pad (or home screen or portal), a single access point to many sources of information. I use a variation of this collection for my browser's default screen, so that whenever I open a browser tab I see these selection options.

Reveal the source code for this screen and copy and paste away. The links I'm offering here are a great place to start your daily search for ideas and code snippets and explanations, but of course over time you will want to replace mine with your own. The links you choose should be places you want to go regularly, shortcuts to your preferred destinations. If you put a launch pad on your-online-self.com, and I think you should, consider how where you go says about who you are. Writing online is writing in public. As you collect links, keep the idea of link rot in mind.
