Peruse the list by category:

Consumer Tech Smart Dudes and Dudettes Tech Insiders Informative Blogs Sponsored by Major Publications/Organizations Wonderfully Geeky Blogs Operating Systems: Linux-Open Source - Windows - Mac Highly Recommended


Exemplary tech blogs across a wide array of subject matter.

Pogue's Posts
Brilliant stuff about personal technology, from the iPhone to email to camcorders. There are very few tech pundits who are as insightful yet plain-spoken as David Pogue, the New York Times gadget guy.

The geekier-than-thou, constantly churning meta-blog is an irreverent center of the online tech world. To be noticed by the likes of Zonk, Cowboy Neal, ScuttleMonkey, ComdrTaco – these individuals are demi-gods. It's their world; we only live in it.

Joho the Blog
David Weinberger is a heavyweight tech thinker, co-author of “The Cluetrain Manifesto” and author of “Small Pieces, Loosely Joined.” He’s also a philosophy professor, a comedy writer and, well, a bunch of other things. Joho the Blog is his meditation on the Internet and anything else that trips the light fantastic.

Secret Diary of Steve Jobs (a.k.a. "The Fake Steve Jobs")
We now know that this wonderfully amusing blog is actually penned by Forbes senior editor Dan Lyons. Although fictional, his skewering of Jobs is virtuosic. Sample post: "DUDE, I INVENTED THE FRIGGIN’ IPHONE. HAVE YOU HEARD OF IT?"

Occam's Razor by Avinash Kaushik
The world is a better place because Avinash Kaushik is in it. A SEO guru, author of the popular book Web Analytics: An Hour a Day he not only knows his stuff, he puts out with charm and generosity. (He’s donating his book proceeds to charity.) No e-commerce entrepreneur should miss this blog.

Paul McNamara
McNamara can be quite entertaining, and his take on corporate and personal tech never wastes a word. His post Rove quitting to spend more time with his iPhone is a must read.

Nicholas Carr
A serious smart guy/deep thinker – and tremendous writer – who riled tech vendors with his ‘Does IT Matter” thesis. Far ranging and very interesting.

Joi Ito’s Web
Ito, a vice president at Technorati and an open source advocate, really gets around. In addition to tech issues his chronicles include anything from John Perry Barlow to the Dali Lama.

Robert X. Cringely
The original Cringely (there are more than one -- it's a long story) can be found on the PBS site. Having earned his street cred with decades in the tech biz, Cringely (the pen name of Mark Stephens) writes with a sharp anti-conformist bent.

Simon Phipp's "SunMink in the Sun"
Sun’s chief open source officer is an interesting fellow. UK-based and highly literate, he’s aware of the politics as well as the technology of software.

Schneier on Security
Is there a more famous security guru than Bruce Schneier? What’s impressive about his blog is the expansive reach of his subject matter: software and hardware, sure, but also security issues in a larger societal context.
