SMART DUDES AND DUDETTES:
Intrepid observers of the tech scene who really know their stuff.
Joel on Software Wonder of wonders: a techie who can actually write. Joel Spolsky is New York-based software developer who covers not only software but larger issues in technology. His post about the disadvantages of allowing comments is quite interesting.
Steve Rubel's Micro Persuasion A major PR cognoscenti, Rubel analyzes the intersection of technology and media. He's changed his format to write less frequently so that he can write better and deeper. He notes: "When I do post on this site it is more substantive and meaningful and it incorporates my learnings from the conversations I have had elsewhere." That's a strategy that more bloggers should probably adopt.
Scott Rosenbergs Wordyard A co-founder of Salon.com, where he was technology editor (and later managing editor) Rosenberg is a thoughtful observer of the tech-culture scene.
O'Reilly Radar Tim O'Reilly and his team put out intelligent tech analysis, with the emphasis on predicting what's coming in before it fully arrives.
Stephen O'Grady's Tecosystems Heres the mission statement for RedMonk: RedMonk is the first analyst firm built on open source. Were dedicated to providing high quality research at no cost, and believe that the dialog that follows is beneficial to us, our community and our clients. Trippy, huh? Steve OGrady blogs with that same spirit, mixing personal insight (and invitations to local parties) with software-tech analysis.
Kottke.org Not so much a place to keep up with technology as a spot to enjoy the interesting and idiosyncratic voice of someone who's deeply involved in high tech. He's been at it for years, and it shows.
John Udell Intense and thoughtful, uber-geek John Udell talks with a lot of interesting people and does a lot of in-depth analysis. Some pictures, too.
VitalSecurity.org A blog that actively combats the bad guys who put out viruses and other things that are bad for our PC. (If you're a bad guy, you'd best fear me.) Thank goodness someones fighting the good fight.
Kim Camerons Identity Weblog Cameron, the architect of Identity and Access at Microsoft, offers some important and smart thoughts about protecting yourself against identity theft in an age when this is a real problem. (So when signing up for Facebook I didnt consider for one moment the idea of publishing my natural birth date.)
TechBlog Dwight Silverman, of the Houston Chronicle, covers personal and enterprise tech with an informal flair. He also post lists of links to tech stories you might have missed.
One of the ways around the issues of security and control that make some businesses wary of cloud computing is to build a private cloud -- one that remains within the corporate firewall and is wholly controlled internally. Private clouds also increase the agility of IT an organization's IT infrastructure and make it easier to roll out new technology projects. Download this eBook to get the facts behind the private cloud and learn how your organization can get started.
