Bloggies and oysters

I read today that the readership of Daily Kos would rank it number five in the US, if were it a newspaper. (And far more people read this blog than read the mainstream paper-made design magazine I once edited). So I decided to spend 15 minutes at the bloggies in order to nominate some favourites for this year’s awards. (You can do the same until Tuesday, January 10). For me, the year's best technology weblog was Future Now out of Institute for the Future. The year's best topical weblog is World Changing by Alex Steffen and his crew. For me the the best new weblog is Farm Subsidy because it helps me get a reality-based grip on a vitally important but usually inpenettable subject. My nomination of culiblog as best blog of the year has nothing to do with the fact that its editor, Debra Solomon, served me a mind-blowing plate of oysters Nahm Kee whilst I was researching this story.
