Blogs You Should Read
The first, Opiate of the Masses, is run by James, a friend of my brother's, who I just discovered had a blog and had already linked to me (Thanks, James!). He's got some great pictures in his photo gallery, and a very eloquent post about why the Plame Affair is such a big deal. Check it out.
The second, the cryptically-named blog, blah, is run by Kaan, a friend of a friend who's been writing recently about Austin software shop Motive, his former place of employment. Apparently they've been having some problems with their shareholders and the SEC. Kaan also wrote an excellent rant against those who voted for Proposition 2.
In case anyone is interested in how I choose the blogs for my blogroll, here's the process. If I've had some interaction with you outside of the world of blogging, you might get on the blogroll. If I've contributed to your blog, you might get on the blogroll. At the moment, that's it. So, if you've sent my 107 requests to be added to my blogroll and I don't know who you are, you're wasting your time (Andrew Sullivan).
