Top ten bloggers
Network World Fusion 09/15/03
In case you haven't guessed from my posts, one of the things I spend a fair amount of time on every day is scanning technology-related Weblogs for interesting tidbits and resources. I started thinking last week: If somebody asked me, who would I put on my must-read list of Webloggers? What follows is a list of nine people whose stuff I read regularly. They're in no particular order; it'd be really impossible to say any one person is "the" most important online writer, because networking is so broad, that distinction would be meaningless (if you really care about security, say, you'd have to pick somebody different than if you really cared about Web services).
Ah, but the headline says "ten" most influential Webloggers! I'm curious - who would you put on your list? Tell me (either by e-mail or by clicking on the comment link below) who'd make your top-ten list (or why you think my list is all wrong) - let's see if we can use this collaborative technology to develop a top-ten list. If you want to review techbloggers in general, here's a list of 53 technology-related Weblogs from our Links pages (note, those links will bring up links to get to the blogs - my apologies for the extra step!).
His Loosely Coupled blog is the place to go if you want to know the story behind all those Web services announcements - he tells you what they means, and why you should care (or not, as the case may be).
Dan, columnist for the San Jose Mercury News, explains the nexus between technology, politics and policy.
Love him or hate him (and there seems to be no middle ground when it comes to Winer), his Scripting News is a must read if you're thinking about the future of information and content sharing on the Internet.
He's the former CIO for the state of Utah and his Weblog covers the breadth of stuff today's IS and networking pros need to keep up with - from security to network architecture to management (both of devices and staff).
The long-time technology observer serves up interesting tidbits - and her analysis.
Unlike most of the other people on this list, Jessup doesn't feel compelled to post something every day. But his thoughts on network security are well worth the wait - they'll make the wheels in your head start to spin as you ponder how to apply them to your network.
He's kind of a classic blogger - he ferrets out interesting stuff, then links to it. Only what he specializes in is seemingly exotic, futuristic stuff that could someday become commonplace (from robots with "feminine intuition" to wearable computers).
If you just can't get enough wireless news and analysis from our wireless research center, Fleishman's Wi-Fi Networking News will make sure you've met your own minimum daily requirement of wireless.
One of the key developer's of today's collaborative workplace (think Lotus Notes), Ozzie is another blogger who doesn't post every day - but when he does, you want to set aside some time. Take, for example, his Saving the Browser piece on how Lotus Notes might be the prior art that would invalidate that Eolas patent on browser technologies.
