New Media Challenge Day 12: Stay Informed

This one may be a no-brainer, but today’s task is to use new media to stay informed.

Surf news sites and online papers to keep up on the latest news in your area, your country, and the world. Subscribe to RSS feeds to get the latest news, weather -- whatever! Scroll through the headlines on your phone while you’re waiting at the doctor. Read up on an issue that’s important to you, like education, while you wait for the kids at soccer. When you’re surrounded by media all the time, it’s easy to get the 411!

What news sites do you frequent? What issues are important to you that you keep track of this way?

Today, let's appreciate the real beauty of the Web, which is of course the fact that we can "run errands" while sitting on the couch -- in our pajamas! Today's task is to use the Web to be lazy, er, proactive.

Shop online for everything from toilet paper to canned corn. File your taxes, order a pizza, take a class, download games, TV shows, books -- you can even renew your library books! There are so many things you can now do online that you never could before. So take advantage and make your life easier and more entertaining!

What do you do online that's so much easier than doing it in person? What are your favorite conveniences of the Web?
