If you want to keep up with what is going on in an industry, what better way then to read the blogs of those employed by the industry? Take, for example, Flashgoirl (no, I didn't misspell it). This is an interesting Blogger blog that links to other Microsoft employees.
If you want something really interesting, take a look at her webcam page which usually shows an empty chair complete with sleeping cat. Sometimes the cat is there, sometimes it isn't. That's what makes it interesting.
