My current electronics-related online reading/viewing list:

Please comment if you have some great additions! I was (and may consider in the future) rating all the sources based on my own opinion, but I decided against it in case I hurt some feelers.

Full disclosure: My interests are mid-level hobbyists projects, test equipment and tutorials/code examples. In the realm of digital electronics I primarily use microchip based mid-range microcontrollers and I’m most knowledgeable with the 14-bit cores. (think 12F, 16F MCUs) I have some interest in expanding to the MSP430 based MCUs and doing something other than practicing coding in python on my Raspi. I have no interests in Arduino besides admiring someone else’s hard work and deciding if I could do it on a different platform. I started with assembly on the RCA CDP1802 and it’s a hard habit to break. I’ve made a new years resolution to code in C as much as possible this year. I also have a fondness for analog and RF electronics; I was a broadcast engineer for sometime and I feel analog electronics are more challenging than 1’s and 0’s. My interests weigh greatly on how I rate my interest level in electronics blogs as should yours.
