The best place to get the latest information about the "Minecraft" video game is from the developers themselves via the Mojang website and the @MojangStatus Twitter feed. Mojang publishes patch notes, information about Minecon and other important announcements on their website.
PlanetMinecraft.com is a useful resource for information about mods, skins, player-run servers, hosting providers and other subjects relating to "Minecraft." This website is run by the player community and includes links to a large number of blogs and gaming websites. PlanetMinecraft is not controlled by Mojang; while the content is moderated by the community, some of it may be unsuitable for younger gamers.
