I was reading a post from Steve Reubel about how he plans his online day. Micro Persuasion: How I Work is a great little article that in about a minute shows you that using online resources you can be plugged in wether at work, home or in between. A couple of great bits from Steve is that he does not read a newspaper or watch TV he instead gets all of his news online.
I have mostly converted to online only news but unless you subscribe to news feeds for local city news or read local papers online you can sometimes lose touch with local news. Steve subscribes to a couple of hundred feeds and I know that I myself subscribe to about 150 or so although I do not read everything every day and somtimes read non date critical stuff sometime at a quiet time during the week.
