I'm something of a pack rat -- keeping things eternally, or close to it. I still have, for instance, almost every program I wrote in college, plus almost everything ever since. I also have preserved links of interest from my blog reading back to ... well, not quite that long. Part of my getting back up to speed is to look through my old noted links of interest, and I'll share them out. I'm more or less arbitrarily diving them in to links of interest, and links to follow up. Everything actually fits in both categories, but a bit of a matter of emphasis between them.
The items to follow up are old enough that you and I can do some searching to see how well they've held up over time. The papers are interesting and good, but many interesting and good papers turn out not to stand up without important additions or modifications over the next few years. These links are at least 3, and some over 4, years old, so there's been some time to see the evolution of thinking the the fields. Some papers' conclusions get stronger over time, some weaker. Pick a topic you're interested in and see what happened through time.
I'm also noting twitter identities for the blogs/bloggers I link to. I'll post a separate note tomorrow asking for your suggestions.
