For cool tools of all kinds, I really like Kevin Kelly's site.
He has two separate sections of interest, one on homesteading.

and one on gardening

In addition, I reckon that his books are of great interest to all permaculturalists.
The Biology of Machines and What Technology Wants are excellent introductions to areas where biology and technology inevitably collide.
