ScobleFeeds A-Z: The O’s

This is part fourteen of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

There aren’t many O’s, but I found a good one:

Overdo’s Land of Nothingness (RSS Feed)

Overdo’s Land of Nothingness is a tech/general interest blog, with a lot of Microsoft tech tips, beta coverage and stories.

Honorable Mention:

Om Malik on Broadband (RSS Feed) (ineligible because I like every other living human read it)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The N’s

This is part fourteen of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

We’re halfway through the list, and here are the best of the N’s:

Neopoleon.com (RSS Feed)

Neowin.net
(RSS Feed)

New Media Musings (RSS Feed)

Neopoleon.com is Rory Blyth’s blog, which has some great writing and some incredible original and topical comics. It’s one for the daily read list.

Neowin.net looks more like a battlestar than a blog (this is one well designed site), but if you want good tech news and lots of it, it’s the place to start.

New Media Musings is J.D. Lasica’s blog. J.D. is once of the founders of the new media movement, which is part and parcel of the move to the edge I love to read and write about.

Honorable Mention:

Naill Kennedy’s Weblog (RSS Feed) (ineligible because I already read it)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The M’s

This is part thirteen of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

There’s a lot of good stuff in this group, so we have our first three-way tie:

Maryamie (RSS Feed)

Manufactured Environments (RSS Feed)

Marc’s Voice (RSS Feed)

Maryamie
is Scoble’s better half, and she may even be the better blogger as well. She blogs on a varied range of topics from why you should date geeks to movies (she and I would not be good movie buddies because she didn’t like Million Dollar Baby and can tolerate light hearted comedies) to tech to politics. I like well rounded blogs from genuine people and this is a great example of that. After reading her blog for a few days, I think Scoble might have married over his head about as much as I did.

Manufactured Environments is a blog that has a lot of music stuff and a lot of tech stuff. Those are my two favorite topics, so it’s an easy add to this list.

Marc’s Voice a/k/a Broadband Mechanics is Marc Canter’s blog. He is one of the founders of the move to the edge movement I talk about so often. His blog has good web 2.0 stuff as well as a lot of other interesting topics. If you want one blog to read to keep current on all web developments, this would be it.

Honorable Mention:

Memeorandum
(RSS Feed) (ineligible because I read it daily, even though for some reason my posts stopped showing up in the discussion links and that makes me sad)

Micro Persuasion
(RSS Feed) (ineligible because I already read it)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The L’s

This is part twelve of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

Some good stuff in this group, so we have another tie:

Leave It Behind > Brian Bailey (RSS Feed)

The Long Tail
(RSS Feed)

Leave It Behind > Brian Bailey is a blog about “blogging, web development and fatherhood.” It’s a really good mix of tech, family stuff and other interesting topics.

The Long Tail started at a disadvantage when I saw the name because that phrase annoys me the way Web 2.0 does, but once I read the blog, I simply could not believe how much great information was there. Take this for example. Or this. This blog could be named Pre-Owned Cars and it would still make my list.

Honorable Mention:

Longhorn Blogs (RSS Feed)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The K’s

This is part eleven of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

There are not a ton of K’s, but I found a couple of good ones:

Knowing.Net (RSS Feed)

Knowing.Net is Larry O’Brien’s blog about software development and computer language. It sounds like a hard science blog, but it’s a lot more than that. In addition to articles about software development and programming, Larry writes about gadgets, music (he likes Pandora as much as I do), movies and blogging in general. A good fit for any blogroll.

Honorable Mention:

Kottke.Org (RSS Feed) (ineligible because I already read it)

Kevin Schofield’s Weblog (RSS Feed)

Kiruba Shankar (RSS Feed)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The J’s

This is part ten of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

There are a lot of good ones in the J’s, so we have another tie:

J-Walk Blog
(RSS Feed)

Jake Ludington’s MediaBlab (RSS Feed)

J-Walk Blog, John Walkenbach’s blog, has politics, humor, current events and photography. It’s always a good read and occasionally I find something hilarious there. Good stuff.

Jake Ludington’s MediaBlab promises audio and video answers for your digital lifestyle and delivers. There is a lot of useful information packed into this blog. If you’re into digital technology, this is a must read.

Honorable Mention:

JKOnTheRun
(RSS Feed) (ineligible because I already read it daily; otherwise it would be the hands down winner)

The Jason Calacanis Weblog
(RSS Feed) (ineligible because I already read it daily)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The I’s

This is part nine of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

Here’s my pick from the I’s:

iBLOGthere4iM (RSS Feed)

iBLOGthere4iM, Randy Charles Morin’s blog, is actually one of the first blogs I started reading when I first began to explore blogs as way of getting news and information. This was before I had a news reader and so I never added it to my blogroll. I am happy to have rediscovered it. Lots of good blogging and general tech posts.

Honorable Mention:

Incremental Blogger (RSS Feed) (ineligible because I already read it)

Inside Microsoft (RSS Feed)

Ian Dixon (RSS Feed)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The H’s

This is part eight of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

One of the things I have concluded based on my review of the Scoblefeeds so far is that there are an awful lot of blogs that either (a) have moved with no forwarding address or (b) aren’t updated very often. My rule of thumb is to move past any blogs that don’t have a least a few posts a week. I’d say between the two, about 40% of the Scoblefeeds are eliminated.

For all of those reasons, there’s not a lot to choose from in the H’s, but I did find one good one:

HorsePigCow (RSS Feed)

HorsePigCow has a little tech, a little photography, a little life. A nice mix of interesting topics by the Online Marketing Manager of Riya. I don’t know enough about Riya to comment one way or the other, but if a bunch of cool people decide to build something, that’s always a good thing.

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The G’s

This is part seven of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

There’s a lot to choose from in the G’s, and here are my favorites:

Greg Hughes – dot – net (RSS Feed)

Greg Hughes covers tech, movies and anything else that catches his eye. He has the sort of broad interests that make for a truly interesting blog. I really like his 48 Random Things post. I hope he does more of posts like that.

Honorable Mention:

Gizmodo
(RSS Feed) (ineligible since I already read it daily)

Global Voices
(RSS Feed)

ScobleFeeds A-Z: The F’s

This is part five of my A-Z review of Scoble‘s feeds. The rules and criteria are here.

There aren’t too many to choose from in the F’s, but here are my favorites:

Feld Thoughts
(RSS Feed)

Feld Thoughts is a popular blog by Brad Feld, Managing Director at Mobius Venture Capital. Broad range of topics, including the usual tech, VC, etc.

Honorable Mention:

Flickr Blog (RSS Feed)

FuzzyBlog (RSS Feed) (Founder of Feedster, but I had to look hard to find the feed link)

Very Different Layout Award:

Flutterby
(RSS Feed) (I’m not sure if I love it or hate it, but it’s definitely different)

Things will get hopping next time when we visit the G’s.
