I am presently attempting to improve my use of the internet; a
problem of applied Intelligence Amplification. I have a few questions
and an observation which I would greatly appreciate comments on.

What are your most effective sources of information on the internet?

How did you find those sources?

How do you make use of those sources?

Do you use filters or robots as an aid to processing material obtained
from the internet?

It strikes me that a very well-thought out document "How to use the net",
along the lines of Mortimer Adler's "How to read a book" would be
extremely useful. _All_ guides to the net I know of focus on what
resources are available, not the applied skills which are necessary to
make the most efficient use of the net.
