41.   Marginal Revolution
http://marginalrevolution.com/

Marginal Revolution is a blog focused on economics run by economists Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok, both of whom teach at George Mason University. The blog's slogan is "Small steps toward a much better world." The site is updated daily and focuses on current events and newly released reports or books. The "small steps" advocated by the slogan are usually free-market-based policies, ranging from new forms of property rights to following the results of behavioral economics studies. As of July 2005, Marginal Revolution had a BlogPulse rank of 88, the highest of any economics blog.

Several of the blog's postings by Cowen were revised and published together in the 2007 book Discover Your Inner Economist.


42.  KnowHR Blog

http://www.knowhr.com/blog/

KnowHR Blog serves up straight talk about human resources. We like simplicity in language. We don’t have much patience with HR jargon (unless we’re making fun of it). The program de jour is probably not going to be on the menu. Crappy business books are bound to be skewered. But it’s not all negative. We believe that people really want to do a good job. That there are ways to create motivation. And that communication is at the heart of it all. You’ll probably get that bias here.

KnowHR is a product of iFractal LLC, which provides organizational communication consulting to some of the leading companies in the world. We can be contacted at +1 215 772 0400. We’ll be delighted to talk to you. Our mailing address is 20 N 3rd Street, Suite 702, Philadelphia, PA, 19106, USA. You can even send e-mail to a real person: frank [dot] roche [at] ifractal [dot] com. “Info” doesn’t work here anymore.


43.  Inhabitat Weblog

http://inhabitat.com/

Mike Chino is the Managing Editor.

Inhabitat covers topics on emerging technologies, green building, energy efficient interior design, emerging sources of renewable energy and sustainable product design.


44. Incidental Economist
http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/

This is a blog (mostly) about the U.S. health care system and its organization, how it works, how it fails us, and what to do about it. All blog authors have professional expertise in an area relevant to the health care system. Main contributors Austin Frakt and Aaron Carroll are researchers and professors in health economics and health services. By avocation and as bloggers we’re actively trying to understand our health care system and make it better. Our goal is to help you understand it too, and to empower you with research-validated information so you can be a more informed observer of or participant in the ongoing debate over how to reform our system.

Sometimes we stray from health care, just to keep things lively. Posts on politics, family life, food, information technology, and personal finance are among the occasional non-health topics. Whether on health care or not, the unifying theme is thoughtful consideration of important ideas. Blog authors write on topics of interest that they know well. Few if any posts at The Incidental Economist are idle speculation or shallow observations.

The blog’s title, “The Incidental Economist,” was Austin Frakt’s pseudonym when he blogged anonymously on The Finance Buff (March-June 2009). Austin is a professional economist, but this is not an essential fact, and he prefers to be judged not for his title but for his work (read more about Austin and his work on his About page). An economist yes, but only incidentally so. The name remains though the blog now has multiple authors.

In August 2010, The Incidental Economist merged with Rational Arguments, Aaron Carroll’s former blog (where his archives remain). If Austin is an incidental economist, Aaron is more so. He’s actually a physician. You can read more about Aaron on his About page.


45. Idol Blog
http://www.idolblog.com/

Idolblog is an unofficial blog site dedicated to the talent search television show NZ Idol. Since its launch in 2004, the site has attracted a dedicated community and its popularity has led to national media coverage in New Zealand.

After the first season of NZ Idol ended in 2004, New Zealand Listener columnist Russell Brown cited Idolblog as an example of how fan-run sites can build communities around programmes more effectively than broadcasters, claiming the site generated "a degree of engagement that the official Idol website never achieved". The site was featured on the TV2 programme Flipside, and mentioned in the New Zealand Herald as a notable source of opinions on NZ Idol.

Idolblog won the 2004 NetGuide Web Award for Best Youth Site, and was a finalist in the 2006 NetGuide Web Award for Best Blog. In 2005, Nielsen//NetRatings ranked Idolblog as the sixth New Zealand website by average session duration.

Idolblog was created by Auckland-based couple Rachel Cunliffe, a website designer and University of Auckland senior tutor in the Department of Statistics, and Regan Cunliffe, who runs a web hosting and design company.

After the final season of NZ Idol aired in 2006, the site has remained as an online tribute to the show and its fanbase. Only parts of the website are still functional. The site now provides commentary and recaps during the American Idol seasons.

Ed Morrissey joined Hot Air in February 2008. He can be reached at ed@hotair.com after writing at Captain’s Quarters since 2003. He also hosts a weekly radio show on Minnesota’s AM 1280 The Patriot every Saturday afternoon.

50. Science Blogs
http://scienceblogs.com/

From climate change to intelligent design, HIV/AIDS to stem cells, science education to space exploration, science is figuring prominently in our discussions of politics, religion, philosophy, business and the arts. New insights and discoveries in neuroscience, theoretical physics and genetics are revolutionizing our understanding of who are are, where we come from and where we're heading. Launched in January 2006, ScienceBlogs is a portal to this global dialogue, a digital science salon featuring the leading bloggers from a wide array of scientific disciplines. Today, ScienceBlogs is the largest online community dedicated to science.

We have selected our 80+ bloggers based on their originality, insight, talent, and dedication and how we think they would contribute to the discussion at ScienceBlogs. Our role, as we see it, is to create and continue to improve this forum for discussion, and to ensure that the rich dialogue that takes place at ScienceBlogs resonates outside the blogosphere.

ScienceBlogs was created by Seed Media Group. We believe that science literacy is a pre-condition for progress in the 21st century. At a time when public interest in science is high but public understanding of science remains weak, we have set out to create innovative media ventures to improve science literacy and to advance global science culture.

53.   Scotus Blog
http://www.scotusblog.com/


SCOTUSblog is devoted to comprehensively covering the U.S. Supreme Court—without bias and according to the highest journalistic and legal ethical standards. The blog is provided as a public service and is sponsored by Goldstein, Howe & Russell, P.C.

Tom Goldstein and Amy Howe – husband and wife – founded the blog in 2002. Reporter Lyle Denniston joined a few years later. Other permanent and part-time staff members have joined over time. Significant contributions have come from other lawyers at Tom and Amy’s law firm, as well as their students at Stanford and Harvard Law Schools. Now more than twenty people work on or write for the blog.

The blog generally reports on every merits case before the Court at least three times: prior to argument; after argument; and after the decision. In certain cases, we invite the advocates to record summaries of their arguments for podcasts. The blog notes all of the non-pauper cert. petitions that seek to raise a legal question which in Tom’s view may interest the Justices; Lyle gives additional coverage to particularly significant petitions. For the merits cases and the petitions we cover, we provide access to all the briefs.

Many of the blog’s posts go beyond coverage of individual cases. Each business day, we provide a “Round-up” of what has been written about the Court. We regularly publish broader analytical pieces. Lyle also comprehensively covers litigation relating to detainees in the “war on terrorism”—a topic of recurring interest at the Court. The blog carries significant analysis of nominees to the Court. In addition, various special projects—such as our thirty days of tributes to Justice Stevens—may span several weeks. Significant books related to the Court are the subject of our “Ask the author” series. A calendar lists significant dates for activity at the Court and programs relating to it. We also regularly publish statistics relating to the Term.

All of the material we collect and publish is easily accessible on the blog.

57.   Talking Points Memo
http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/

Talking Points Memo (TPM) is one of the most innovative political news organizations in the United States. The editors of Time magazine say TPM "has become the prototype of what a successful Web-based news organization is likely to be in the future." With its relentless focus on breaking news, original reporting and investigative journalism, TPM has made itself a must-read for DC insiders, the media who cover them and politically engaged people everywhere. And media watchers have taken notice too: In addition to many other awards and citations, TPM was the first online news organization to win the prestigious George Polk Award in 2008.



58.  Freakonomics
http://www.freakonomics.com/blog/

It began when New York journalist and author Stephen J. Dubner went to Chicago to write about award-winning economist Steven D. Levitt for The New York Times Magazine. Dubner had been reluctant to take the assignment (he was in the middle of writing a book about the psychology of money). Levitt was reluctant to be shadowed by a journalist (but his mother loved the Times Magazine, so he gave in). The article came out, and led to an unexpected partnership. Levitt and Dubner wrote Freakonomics, a book about cheating teachers, bizarre baby names, self-dealing Realtors, and crack-selling mama’s boys. They figured it would sell about 80 copies. Instead, it took up long-term residency on the Times best-seller list, and went on to sell more than 4 million copies in 35 languages. Then they wrote SuperFreakonomics. It also became a worldwide best-seller. A lot of other stuff happened, too. A blog. A documentary film. Jon Stewart and Beauty and the Geek! Lectures. A pair of pants. A radio show. Not bad for a partnership born of such profound reluctance.


59.  Got2BeGreen
http://www.got2begreen.com/

The momentum of the Green movement has been slowed by everyone's preoccupation with the economic downturn, which is a shame, since Green done right can help save the other kind of green. Got2BeGreen is a blog devoted to highlighting ideas and products that are friendly not only to the planet but to your budget. For instance, did you know that the economic stimulus package includes dozens of tax credits for energy efficient products, everything from a $150 credit for a new furnace or boiler to $2,000 for a ground source heat pump? Or that you could be saving up to $100 by plugging your computer and electronics into a switchable power strip instead of letting components suck up electricity in standby mode? Or that you should never place hot food in the fridge because it uses up more energy? Got2BeGreen is a daily reminder that being eco-friendly is just plain smart.


60. BoingBoing
http://www.boingboing.net/

BoingBoing is a blog written by geeks. But we mean geeks in the best sense of the term — the smart, eternally curious seekers of information, not the smug know-it-alls with questionable personal hygiene. The self-described "Directory of Wonderful Things" is compiled by four regular bloggers and a revolving corps of guest geeks who present the bleeding edge of technology and fringe culture. BoingBoing is equally adept at uncovering can-you-believe-this photos ("Carved watermelon resembles human mouth!") as it is rallying readers to demand greater digital freedoms. The blog helped direct public pressure on Google and Yahoo! when the companies caved to China's Internet censors, and the site reserves a special spot in hell for music and film companies that prosecute small-time file sharers.
