Favorites and Special Interests

Being from Chicago, Il originally, I like to check up on the sports news in the Chicago area.  I am a Chicago Bear and Chicago White Sox fan.  Given this, my favorite sites on the Web are: the Chicago Tribune Bears Page, the Chicago Tribune White Sox Page and the Chicago Sun-Times Sports Page.  Other good sports sites are: ESPN and The SportingNews.

There are a number of professional organizations, while not being an official member of, I still like to keep up with.  These organizations include:  ACM,   AAAIDSIIEEE Computer SocietyIEEE SMC SocietyINFORMS , SIGART , and  SCSI.
Academic publishers abound on the Web: 
As do On-Line Books/Bookstores:
