Every once in a while I’ll be tossing out links to some of the blogs I read regularly. Here’s the first batch. David Brin – scientist and best selling author. His posts vary on topic, but he often has keen insights into government functioning or lack thereof. Peter Watts – hard science fiction author, often with interesting posts, hoping for more of these again now that his recent legal troubles have been resolved. eReads – Richard Curtis writes this blog, generally about electronic publishing, but striking a good balance between what the dreamers want the future of publishing to be and what it really is.
