today is blog day

Today is blog day (well, today isn't, it's the 19th of May, but hurrah for autopost)

I'm supposed to recommend 5 blogs to you.

I'm also supposed to find *new* blogs. But FTS, I'm too lazy. Plus I know the ones listed here are ones that I know I go back to day after day and find useful.

Oglaf is some dude's NSFW comic that started out as an attempt at cartoon porn but now is mostly funny. The shield maiden is my favourite post.

Hacker News from ycombinator - kinda like slashdot in that its a lot of interesting geek links. More links. Less discussion. Feels more intimate, and more focused around the bay area startup crowd.

Lambda the ultimate - a programming languages weblog. A cross between programming and maths. If you like Haskell, you'll like this, though all sorts of language stuff (theory, design) is talked about. You can also laugh at the "amusing" paper titles that authors come up with.

In a bit of shameless self promotion, I'll point you at the drupal news feed for my hobby project, barwen.ch - this is partly blog, partly just a web page change tracker.

Finally, Bruce Schneier's security blog. Aside from his tendency to ramble on about squids, this is pretty interesting. It evolved out of his company newsletter, and talks mostly about computer security but also about other related topics such as social engineering and terrorism. And squid.
