Here is a page with links to various news and information resources.  It is evolutionary and I hope to make it a good place to come to find relevant and favourite news sources.  There are the obvious famous ones like Reuters UK, BBC News and Al Jazeera and there are the more obscure like LockerGnome, Ship of Fools and News of the Weird.  If you want some news source adding to this page just email me and I will add it.  It can be one you like or your own news site.
