In honor of hitting the 10k subscriber mark here at How-To Geek, I’ve decided to deviate from the normal how-to articles and write up a short list of the smaller geek sites I read the most frequently that you might not have heard of.

 

Lifehacker
My favorite site by far, Lifehacker has featured our articles on numerous occasions. (we know, you’ve heard of lifehacker, but we love Gina too much to leave it out)

ArsGeek
This is just a great all-around site for random geek news. An essential subscription for me.

Of Zen and Computing
Zen Bliss is one of the best writers I’ve come across… and his site reminds me of Starbucks Zen Tea somehow. He’s got a knack for explaining things so that anybody can understand.

CodeJacked
Whoever this guy is, he comes up with some very unique tips.

Shell Extension City
Bob at ShellCity features new freeware applications every day.

IntelliAdmin
Got some great tips on Windows and related topics.

Daily Cup of Tech
Another great geek site that covers a wide range of geek topics.

Nerdica
This site is just starting out, but judging from the quality of some of the stuff I’ve read so far, I’ve got high hopes that this will turn into something great.

tuxmachines
Their slogan reminds me of Fish from Ally McBeal… but they also find the best linux content.

Tweako
This is pretty much the best aggregator of how-to articles that I’ve found, covering almost every area.

Free Software Daily
This is a digg-style news site that focuses solely on open source software.

 

There’s obviously tons of sites not included on the list, but these are the ones I actually read the most often.
