30 Fantastic Websites To Lose Yourself In If you follow me on Twitter you might know that I moved to London last September. You might also know that since then I’ve had nothing but trouble trying to get an Internet connection set up in my home. Fortunately, last week I finally got everything up and running and to mark my triumphant return to the world of the Internet I went a little crazy and shared 30 of my favourite websites on Twitter.

It was that decision more than any other that is credited for positioning GE as the belle of the ball for the remainder of Welch’s corporate tenure. But I think the secret to the success of Welch’s decision was less about his insight than his ability to implement that insight.
