Sharpening The Saw

The past few years there have been a ton of blog posts on the ever growing flood of software development information out there and how hard it is to even pretend to keep up.  One post that stuck with me was labeled Everything You Know Will Be Obsolete in Five Years

Anyway, it all comes down to how do software developers interested in staying current do so?  Recently, Scott Hanselman addressed this very issue with a post labeled after a great analogy, Sharpening the Saw.

Myself?  I have tried hard to find the best resources that work for me and have found these that I like

First, I love my RSS Feed  from this blog titled (most appropriately) Continuous Learner.  He skims the best development blogs out there and recaps some of the better ones in a simple itemized list would have taken me hours to do each week.

For Podcasts, and specifically for .NET Developers, I agree with this list, Randy Pattersons Top 10 List of Podcasts - 4 of them anyway have long been on my list of favorites

Do you have a resource that works for you that you would be willing to share?  Always looking for a great resource.
