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


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 Rosenberg’s 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
Here’s the mission statement for RedMonk: “RedMonk is the first analyst firm built on open source. We’re 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 O’Grady blogs with that same spirit, mixing personal insight (and invitations to local parties) with software-tech analysis.

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.

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 someone’s fighting the good fight.

Kim Cameron’s 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 didn’t consider for one moment the idea of publishing my natural birth date.”)

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.
