Swivel Feeds, Group 4

This is an update on my swivel feeds experiment, in which I ask bloggers I read to help me rebuild my reading list.  I’ve had a great response so far, and my new reading list is coming together nicely, with a diverse and interesting mix of bloggers.

Here are the swivel feeds recommendations so far from the third group.  Note that, when possible, I designate blogs by the name of the blogger, because I like to know who I’m talking to.

From Group 3 I haven’t heard from Dave Winer, David Airey or Doc Searls.  From Group 2 I haven’t heard from Bill LiversidgeCorey Clayton or Dave Rogers.  My general policy is to assume non-participation after 2 weeks.  Craig Newmark elected not to participate.

From Group 1, Amy GahranBen Metcalfe or Ben Werdmuller did not respond and have been dropped from the swivel feeds list.  Amy gets a “sponsor’s exemption,” however, and remains on my reading list.  I think she may still be off the grid.

Now for the next 8 bloggers:

Donna Bogatin:  Until recently, Donna wrote for ZDNet at Digital Markets.  Now she’s on her own at InsiderChatter.com.  One of my long time reads.

Eric Scalf:  My WordPress guru and a great writer on blog building and other topics.

Ethan Johnson:  Another core blogging buddy.  He has this soccer thing going, but at least I have some understanding of soccer.  Unlike Linux and Macs and that sort of thing.

Frank Gruber:  A long time blogging buddy as well.  Frank works for AOL and writes about Web 2.0, technology a
nd
other interesting stuff.

Frank Paynter:  I’ve read Frank’s blog for as long as I’ve been reading blogs.  Highly recommended.

Fraser Kelton:  Fraser is another long-time read.  He has been blogging intermittently lately.  Maybe this will nudge him back to the keyboard.

Fred Wilson:  Fred and I are about the same age, and share a lot of musical interests.  He’s a good, thoughtful writer on a wide range of topics.

Greg Hughes:  Another long time read, Greg is an IT/security guy who writes well about various tech topics.

That’s the fourth group of bloggers I’m asking to help rebuild my reading list.  If you’re willing, please recommend 5 of your favorite blogs to add to the list.  Use the comments, your blog or email, whichever you prefer.
