Tech Insiders

Active participants in the tech scene who have been around long enough to know what’s going on behind the scenes.

71) John Dvorak Uncensored
A provocateur whose musings about consumer and enterprise tech are always straight to the point. Who else but Dvorak would recommend that Apple should “pull the plug on the iPhone” – one of the most successful product launches in tech history? Clearly, he’s not afraid to march to the beat of his own drummer. (Note: he gets help from an expert crew on his personal blog.) Here’s his work on Marketwatch

72) Leo Laporte
The onetime TechTV host is now a Renaissance Man of new media, leveraging Twitter and Net video feeds to broadcast tech news and trends.

73) All Things Distributed
As the CTO of Amazon, of course Werner Vogels’ blog promotes the online retail giant. Yet he also offers context on larger issues in cloud computing, along with interesting personal asides.

74) Rahul Sood
The founder of VooDooPC, now the CTO for Hewlett-Packard’s global gaming business, blogs about PCs, desktop software, and the tech industry.

75) I, Cringely: The Pulpit
The original Robert X. 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 writes with a sharp anti-conformist bent.

76) Niall Kennedy’s Weblog
Kennedy is a rare individual in that he’s both a serious programmer (he was a featured developer of the TUI JavaScript libraries) and an event organizer who produces the annual Widget Summit in Silicon Valley, among other activities. He blogs about how syndication and emerging business trends are changing the Web.

77) Marc Andreessen
Having co-founded Netscape, and more recently the social network Ning, Andreessen is well qualified to comment on the relationship between society, business and the Web.

78) Alan Meckler's Internet Media Commentary
Meckler, the CEO of Jupitermedia (the company that publishes this site) has done about as many Internet deals as anyone. So in addition to being one of the few CEOs to pen a blog, his posts offer pithy behind-the-scenes insight into business on the Web.

79) Matt Cutts: Gadgets, Google and SEO
Cutts, a software engineer and head of Google’s Webspam team, covers a lot of Internet-related issues along with a smattering of personal tech.

80) Esther Dyson
Describing herself as the “Internet’s court jester,” Dyson blogs about Web business and social media, among other topics.

81) Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
Leading Linux pundit Vaughn-Nichols promotes open source on the desktop and in business. Here’s a second Linux-related blog he writes.

82) 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. He’s the author of a book about software development, Dreaming in Code, and an upcoming book about blogging,

83) Robin Miller’s Roblimo.com
The personal musings of the SourceForge head honcho. He also posts about the software business on Linux.com.

84) Seth Finkelstein’s Infothought
A serious, detailed look at search engine policy, focusing on Google and the DMCA.

86) Mark Cuban Blog Maverick
Cuban scored a mountain of cash in the dotcom days, and is now an unabashedly opinionated commentator about business/tech issues. He famously declared that the Internet is now ”dead and boring.” Who knew?

87) Good Morning Silicon Valley
John Murrell offers a lively mix of tech business news, intelligently and entertainingly written.

88) VentureBeat
The business of tech, with an emphasis on consumer tech news and trends. Aided by a full staff, VentureBeat has earned a substantial following.

89) Ron Miller
Short, pointed posts and copious links about, well, pretty much everything: Apple, open source, software, Web publishing, and more. Miller is an experienced journalist.

90) Henry Blodget: Silicon Valley Insider
Sure, during the days of the late 1990s tech bubble Blodget was a poster boy for the conflict of interest between the research and banking divisions of brokerage houses, but his comments are well written and chock full of interesting insight.

91) Esther Schindler: You’re the Boss
Insider’s tips and commentary about management in the tech working world. Example: How do you answer an interviewer's question: What are your strengths?

92) Device Guru
Embedded processors, mobility, robotics, storage and other topics covered by the highly knowledgeable Rick Lehrbaum.
