This is a roundup of roundups. We are oversaturated with information from a multiplicity of sources and communications platforms. I don’t know about you but I am turning increasingly to trusted sources of aggregated news and opinion.

In the spirit of No Excuses Power Tool #8, Employ Every Medium, I’m curious about something. What news aggregations you check first thing in the morning? What twitter lists or Facebook groups do you follow? What other sources do you use to stay up to date on the things that are important to you without drowning in information?

Here are some of mine to start the conversation. Please share yours too.

Twitter Trends (though I am amazed at how filled with trivia it has become, and I use it less and less—still, if I want to know the minute a story breaks…)

The Daily Beast: I can’t say that anything will ever replace the feeling of the New York Times in my hands in the morning, but I find I now read the Beast’s daily e-mail summary of hot topics before anything else now.

The Women’s Campaign Fund sassy weekly or so update on all things involving women in politics, MS Representation. Sign up—it’s the best.

Political Voices of Women Facebook group

A few twitter lists: @ManishaThakor/thought-leaders, @tlists/civil-human-rights-995, @HarrisLynn/cackle-of-rads @womenactmedia/wam-mers

Truthout: Originals as well as aggregation
