Kevin Kelly's Recomendo reminds me of Whole Earth Signal, which blew my mind and then became an obsession for years after I discovered it as a teenager (it seems to have had that effect on other people, too).

Then I realized that Kevin Kelly edited Signal. And Wired. So that makes sense.

I don't actually like extreme gadgets that much, the neat thing about Signal was that the reviews would tell you about these exciting things people were doing with equipment that was often far from cutting edge. Still, Amazon's “early adopter” page and Gizmodo are fun, too.
