Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Sign up
Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I currently rely on a mixture of mailing lists, twitter and a couple of blogs.

What do you use for your GIS media intake, and why?

I voted to close this topic because it is asking for value judgement and cannot be answered definitively. At the very least, it should be a community wiki. – JasonBirch Jul 24 '10 at 8:00

Slashgeo ceased publication as of June 2, 2015, but apparently continues to share items on Twitter.

Don't forget the GIS Stackexchange!

Adding to few mentioned already:

I like the podcasts from directions magazine. I can't really tell how small (or big) they are as a company. I'm from Germany, they don't sell the magazine here.

The podcast is in dialog mode between two editors, and they usually talk about a lot of products, technologies, trends. I liked how they compared their predictions for a calendar-year with the actual results after that year has ended.

I use Feedly, which I believe was the successor of Google Reader, when it ceased to exist. However, I liked Google Reader better, as it was easier to save the read material in different categories.
