5 blogs that make me think

I’m not usually one for jumping onto various memes, but when Robert tagged me with the “5 blogs that make me think” meme I figured I could turn it into an opportunity to mention a few people whose writings I enjoy and find thought-provoking in one way or another.

Since I know how some people (including myself) feel about memes, I want to ask the people on my list to please not feel obliged to pass this on.

In alphabetical order by surname:

  • Joe Clark. For the hard-hitting, sarcastic postings on accessibility, Web standards, typography, and much more (though Joe recently announced in Trying not to pretend that he is retiring from Web accessibility).
  • Chris Heilmann. For a lot of useful tricks and tips related to JavaScript and accessibility, and for making me laugh a lot.
  • Bruce Lawson. For the “I don’t give a damn”-attitude and humour, and for the frank and no-nonsense rants about things that are wrong in the world.
  • Jack Pickard. For his rants about Web standards and accessibility. And for the chemistry theme, including the ethanol dogs.
  • Jonathan Snook. For consistently providing excellent advice and tips on JavaScript and other stuff related to Web development.

There are many others, of course, but I had to pick five. One of my criteria is that the blog should be updated on a reasonably regular basis, which is why a couple of my otherwise favourite writers are not on this list.

What five blogs or bloggers make you think?
