Our Favorite Technology Blogs

A comprehensive listing of information technology-related blogs selected by the editors of WhatIs.com that cover selected industry verticals and technologies.

Introduction to Blogs and Blogging

A blog is defined by its format: a series of entries posted to a single page in reverse-chronological order. Microblogging is similar, constrained by the limits of an SMS message and a dash of mobile social networking thrown in on some versions, like Twitter. Many blogs offer considerably more than the simply formula, but that's the definition of the form. WhatIs.com's blogs, for instance, each offer a different spin on what a blog can be:

  • Visit Our Latest Discovery to discover great Web sites, videos, photos, information technology (IT) definitions, blogs, tutorials, cheat sheets and Internet culture.
  • Challenge your knowledge of tech trivia, IT acronyms, online slang and enterprise technology with the Tech Quiz of the Day. Three new questions, every weekday.
  • Overheard in the Blogosphere is like an impressionist painting about information technology. Close up, it's just a bunch of colorful quotes. Take a step back and look at all the posts together — and you begin to see a picture.
  • Is your grammar as good as your code? Use the daily question at Writing for Business to brush up your written communication skills!

Note: Some of the blogs listed here belong in more than one category. Slashdot.org is a prime example of this phenomenon. For the sake of organization, we've entered each only once, often in the Internet category. If you strongly disagree, let us know about that, too.
