21 Inspirational Web 2.0 Blogs

There are a lot of blogs appearing, many of which claim to be Web 2.0 based.  On this particular journey of research  I set out to identify

  • relevant
  • popular
  • factual
  • and most importantly sticky blogs

…those which keep bringing us back for their content.  I had no preconceived ideas(except excellent from ones that I have visited previously), and intend to update this list on a regular basis, disposing of those which don’t satisfy my requirements.  I have also set up bloglines to speed up the process of analysing posts

  1. slashdot.com The original technology blog, their byline “News for Nerds, Stuff that Matters”
  2. web2.socialcomputingjournal.com Dion Hinchcliffe’s Web 2.0 Blog “Social Networking designed for your business”
  3. radar.oreilly.com/tim/ Founder of  O’Reilly Media group. “Tim watches the alpha geeks” to determine trends an serves as a platform for discussions of the technical community
  4. mashable.com The Social Media Guide, multiple authors with their finger on the pulse of current Web 2.0 technology
  5. techcrunch.com Coverage of new Internet products and companies, particularly those making an impact
  6. kevinrose.com Web 2.0 commentator and founder of Digg -recently wefollow.com, a Twitter aggregator
  7. toys.lerdorf.com He invented php, one of the backbones of many a Web 2.0 application, and is sharp
  8. technorati.com More a search engine for blogs, but quite valuable and rich in content
  9. googleblog.blogspot.com The Official Google blog (and their research is as cutting edge as most) giving an insight into new products and technology
  10. blog.wolframalpha.com/ Wodfram|Alpha is a “computational knowledge engine”, but basically tries to understand you search query
  11. blog.twitter.com Twitter.com is the phenomenon of the moment, and this blog tends to provide updated information for users
  12. gigaom.com/category/web Technology news, analysis and opinions
  13. blogs.zdnet.com “Where technology means business”
  14. www.socialtimes.com “Technically Social” focussing on social media and the industry
  15. failblog.org Because to enjoy life you need a daily laugh
  16. www.smashingmagazine.com “we smash you with information that will make your life easier,really”
  17. www.lifehacker.com.au An Australian perspective on international technology
  18. alistapart.com Usability for Web Developers

  20. technosight.com “living online and offline at the same time” coverage and analysis of web 2.0 startups, technologies, and trends
  21. hackdiary.com the last entrant was recommended due to the “genius” which writes it – “the code and hacks behind many Web 2.0 applications”

I hope you are inspired!  If not feel free to give me some inspiration.
