I don't always have a lot of time to keep up with what is going on in the 'Blog-o-sphere', but there are a a few blogs that I try to read whenever possible. In an effort to increase the frequency of my own blogging I thought it would be a good idea to write a post about my 'unmissable blogs':
- Prof.so - written by Anthony Finkelstein, provides some excellent insights into software engineering research and academia in general, with some great humour thrown in. Check out some of the excellent '10 Top ...' lists!
- Geek Prof - written by Ian Sommerville, is a blog I've only recently been introduced to but found to be a really good read. Wise words about the state of academia and research, as well as insights on a range of topics that range from cybersecurity to software and systems engineering.
- Crypto-gram - written by Bruce Schneier, the content of which can be accessed in multiple forms, including a podcast and a email newsletter. This is one of my main sources of information on the most critical security issues with the added benefit of Bruce Schneier's perspective and insights.
- Light Blue Touchpaper - written by Ross Anderson plus others in the Security Research group at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory. Mixture of research and commentary on security and privacy relevant topics.
