SFReader: speculative fiction book reviews
Gender and Feminism/Masculism
Yes Means Yes Blog: blog on consent and contemporary dating, feminist style. Note, some content is adult in nature.
No Seriously, What About Teh Menz? Tired of hearing vaguely accusatory "what about men?" arguments thrown into feminist discussion, this group blog was created to generate focused discussion on gender issues from a "masculist", rather than "feminist" point of view, and has matured my own thinking on gender subjects quite a bit.
Linux and Computing
A Beginner's Python Tutorial: at one point I had to learn python, and this was extremely helpful
LinuxChix : community for linux users who happen to be female
