BERLIN -- Unlike some A-listers, I cannot maintain and will not consume a link list comprised of 1000 sources. It's simply better to check the flow through the eyes of seers. So when I open my bloglines to see what's up, I read six site summaries before I finish my morning coffee and I feel I've topped up my morning information hunger pangs.
The six blogs on my short list generate a total of around 40 items overnight. Only half of them offer titles, so readers are into a full consumption pattern. As 2004 draws to a close, I toast them for their style and substance.
- Boing Boing. The best group blog on the planet. (13,820 Bloglines subscribers)
- Resource Shelf. Contains at least two actionable items a day. Execute those items (read them it they pertain to you) and stay ahead as a knowledge worker. (2145 Bloglines subscribers)
- Robert Scoble's Link Blog. Incisive and dynamic. (260 Bloglines subscribers)
- Stephen Downes OLDaily. This education blog contains more each week than found in a monthly edition of a pulp magazine for educators. (306 Bloglines subscribers)
- Doc Searls. The highest level of integrity converted to pixels. I've seen Doc blog and that's a study in itself. (1805 Bloglines subscribers)
- Dervala Hanley. Best online essays with a personable insight and a respect for the real world. (48 Bloglines subscribers)
- JWalk. Added after an alert reader pointed out I am a regular visitor. But I cannot use most of JWalk in my course notes.
