We all post stuff we find on other blogs. How about a list of the best? What web sites do you routinely visit in hopes of finding that latest thing?

Yes, NextBigFuture is great. I also read NewSpacewatch.com where Clark Lindsey of Hobby Space fame is now managing editor.
Other interesting blogs are gizmag.com and popular mechanics, popsci, sciencedaily.
For SpaceX news I read the tweets by SpaceX and Musk. I also visit the nasaspaceflight forums and talk polywell which usually have posts on interesting developments pretty early. For news on LPPX I also ready their tweets and their updates.
Other than that, I find myself more and more going directly to the source of the actual information lately. E.g. I know many of the players in the fields of science that interest me and I google for new papers or other info with their names in it frequently.
I have to admit though that the quality of the news sources has been severely lacking these days. Nowadays we seem to have quantity of information, but the quality is is often disappointing. A recent example was the total lack of a follow up with Lockheed on their fusion reactor announcement. Every single news source said essentially the same thing (transcribed from the video). Nowadays press releases are uncritically published as news.

One of the blogs I have been a busy consumer of on and off for years is The Register. It's all written tongue in cheek but well worth at least an occasional visit.

Good for all kinds of medical research. I like "anandamide". A search on that is very interesting.

You should not forget the best of science blogs: WUWT
It has won the award many times and for a reason.

WUWT has a lively discussion and it allows you to disagree. Scientific method is appreciated and facts, links and measurements are required. WUWT is particularly good at reviewing scientific papers. Authority means nothing if the paper is not OK.
