Blogs have become an important source of information, but the signal-to-noise ratio has made it hard to find the gems. In our pursuit, we spent weeks checking out technology-oriented blogs based on the recommendations from our reporters and readers.
Of course, such a list is bound to generate vigorous agreement and vehement dissent. It's impossible to even get universal agreement on the definition of a blog.
For our search, we decided to be very liberal. You'll find blogs produced by a single person and others that have grown to include a staff of contributors. Some are associated with major news outlets, while some are published by large companies. The bottom line is that they all are produced by passionate people who have a wealth of information about their corner of the tech world.
After defining the types of blogs that could be considered for our list, the next question was to determine just what constitutes a "good" blog.
There are a lot of reasons people find particular blogs worthy of their time. Some are valued solely for their aggregation of pertinent news, while others have formed a devoted following based on the robust and educated comments of their readers. Still others have become popular because of their humor or for the biting tone of their writers' opinions.
With a blog being created about every second, there are bound to be many more good ones.
