After sifting through 90-100 blogs that I thought had strong content potential, these are my personal fave 32 posters that are making sense of the space (too bad Technorati doesn't sift for quality of ideas, would have made my job easier)- these are the "Community Ringleaders".
Would love to hear about others as I'm sure there are diamonds in the rough or people overlooked? I find that good quality specialist blogs in any area, particular this one are tough to discover because:
- people lose interest in their blogs (blogged about this previously in The Quality of the Blogosphere Careens Downhill)
- people have to be practitioners in order to say something new, fresh or important and
- people need discipline to stick to the reason they started their blogs in the first place (many have veered from their initial community slant).
