Well, I don't habitually read any of the blogs (except Joel's). However, I do have a list of list of .NET and Java developers blogs stored in an IE favorites folder.

A recent topic that I found interesting was "101 reasons why Java is better than .NET".  The list itself wasn't all that interesting to read, but the back and forth debating and the comments it generated on several blogs were.

Other than Joel's ,

Chris Sells, Dave Winer (mostly to get links to other blogs:-) ), Paul Graham, Mark Cuban's occasional email responses, that covers it.

There was a similar topic in this forum, you should search the forum.

Some good places to start, particularly for programmers:

A whole bunch of perlfolks are at use.perl [1].

A number of Java people are aggregated at JavaBlogs [2].

Other than that, I have a collection of ones I find interesting on my website/blog [3] that I've accrued over time. Many of them are programmers, but a few are political and a few are just people from my area (Pittsburgh).

On my favourites menu, the following IMHO count as "bloggers" :

* www.joelonsoftware.com
* www.paulgraham.com
* www.stevemcconnell.com/bp.htm
* www.csis.gvsu.edu/~heusserm/Welcome.html

Make of that what you will...
