probably not what you’re looking for, but I like WIRED magazine.

Edmund Carter’s Oh What A Blow That Phantom Gave Me!, anything by Edward de Bono on lateral thinking and anything by Marshall McLuhan will expand your head, despite these works predating the internet.

you can find Oh What A Blow That Phantom Gave Me! here:

also, you work for the Devil!

@Ria777 i know, Bill Hicks would be so mad at me. I’ve read McLuhan but i’m looking for something more recent, actually something published in 2008 would be awesome. I am also suscribed to a zillion feeds/blogs and read constantly valleywag, wired, mashable and whatnot, thanks anyray @Bagardbilla.
@uberbatman: i’ll try to search for some legoesque people covered book, thanks!

you already live in a 2008 culture. it surrounds you every day, both physically and mentally. sometimes going back to the past can show you The New.
