[OT] What do you read? Newsletters/blogs/feeds of interest about Java?

Hello everybody.
I'm sorry this is not specifically related to Idea but since there is an
important community reading/posting here, I'm sure some of you can help.
I am looking for interesting stuff to read (or listen to!) about Java
when going to/coming from work, and I was wondering if you guys had some
suggestions for newsletters, blogs, RSS feeds, podcasts, etc.
What do you read?
Below is the list of what I'm already subscribed to - check them if you
don't know them yet. But it's not enough, I want more :)

Thanks!

I read a bunch of stuff daily, but one of my favourites is James Duncan Davidson's website, www.x180.net. Warning - will occasionally/frequently promote Ruby as an alternative to Java. Is obviously really switched on technically, and is a great photographer and seems like a really nice, reasonable guy to boot.

What do you mean you don't know who writes that? That is me! Anyway, glad you like it. :)

Just in case, my name is Eugene Kuleshov and I am Java/J2EE consultant working in Toronto. By strange coincidence I am also one of the developers of the ASM bytecode manipulation framework which is behind tools like AspectWerkz, CGLIB, Hibernate and many others, including some of the features of IDEA itself. By another strange counsidence I graduated in the same university as JetBrains founders...

Ahaha :) Well sorry!
You might want to put that info on the site somewhere ;)

(but you didn't answer the question!)
