Experts,

As a one-man IT department in a medium-sized company, I have been looking for ways to stay sharp and increase information sharing and collaboration with other IT pros.

I was wondering what kind of publications you read as well as conferences, training, forums, and communities you have found most helpful.  Experts Exchange has been awesome for specific issues (thanks EE) and I read all of the free news I can find on the internet but it's hard to match having other IT pros to bounce ideas and to bring new insight to issues.

Any suggestions on the following:

- Publications (online or printed, paid is ok)
- Conferences/Training/Seminars (preferably in LA area)
- Online communities or forums

Also any other tech news websites that you have found to be good, especially business-centered ones.  I read Google News, Wired, Lifehacker, Businessweek Tech, Fortune Tech, Engadget, Gizmodo, PC magazine.  Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Ben
