Here’s a list of some excellent tech blogs that focus on the Net, blogging, and what it all means. Most are written by uber-geeks who know the landscape well, and indeed, may have helped create it. If something new and important is happening on the Net, chances are you’ll read about it first in one of these blogs.
This list is not comprehensive! All the blogs here are well-written, highly informative, and link to cutting-edge stuff you’ll not find elsewhere.
The blogroll on my tech blog lists all of them plus many more, if you’re interested.
Robert Scoble is “technology evangelist” for Microsoft. He gets paid to blog, has considerable latitude in what he says, and yes, sometimes criticizes his employer. There’s plenty of insight and intelligence here, great links too.
Dave’s WordPress blog
Dave Winer has played a major role in the creation of blogs, RSS, and podcasting. He’s “controversial” and can be brilliant as well as infuriating, sometimes at the same time.
