Although sites which host blogging communities like Live Journal can help in burning down some time and picking up few interesting ideas, standalong blogs are way more enjoyable and fun. Unfortunately, smart and interesting people are usually busy with other things and don’t update their blogs five times a day. But, boy, is it cool when they do so! :)
A simple trick to enjoy lots of articles in the smart person’s blog is to ignore the site for some time. You just have to be careful not to leave it long enough to forget about it. Today I read a lot of insightful articles at Joel on Software. Alan Cox‘s diary still appears to be in Welsh and I’ve lost that convenient link with someone’s translation. I am not sure the guy could cope up. :) Alan’s wife Telsa though keeps an interesting diary too. And it is in English. Proper English.
