Dennis Callahan, senior vice president for e-business & chief information officer at New York-based Guardian Life Insurance Company, visits the following sites:
www.gigaweb.com, www.gartner.com, www.cio.executiveboard.com, www.renolan.com, www.rfgonline.com: I visit sites that focus on technical developments, from which I glean strategic technical and management inputs and compare vendors/products.
www.concoursgroup.com, www.ecommercetimes.com I frequent these sites for a more specific e-business focus and for monitoring technical and competitive trends.
As a consumer and hobbiest I go to www.edmunds.com for cars; www.jastown.com for reproductions to suit my circa-1730 home and www.discover.com for material covering science, nature and archeology.
www.redherring.com: I visit this to see how the venture capitalists see emerging technologies. I don't always agree, but it's good to know where the "smart money" is and is not going.
