Apparently I need to frequent Slashdot?
I stopped reading Slashdot about the time that I mined those two blocks of bitcoins back on July 12, 2010. The main problem with Slashdot was that its primary moderator biased the chosen articles to what in retrospect seems to be a fairly narrow scope, e.g. anti-Microsoft, pro-open source, scruffy and so forth.
Each day I now rapidly scan the 60 most popular headlines on Hacker News http://news.ycombinator.com/news
, and then also rapidly scan the 500-600 headlines posted on the New section overnight. Hacker News is operated by the famous Y Combinator, i.e. Paul Graham, startup incubator, and anyone can post a headline there that roughly fits the interests of people who might form or otherwise participate in a startup company - namely the same sorts of people who love bitcoins.
Needless to say, there is some mention of bitcoins nearly every day, and my attention was drawn back to bitcoin mining after a 10 month hiatus by the continuing stream of Bitcoin articles on Hacker News.
Give it a try. Its a sort of firehose, and most articles will be in some narrow tech area not of interest - but you probably will not miss out on the next big thing. By the way that next big thing might very well be a new wave of startups involving the growing bitcoin economy.
