Groupblogs have long interested me, at least as a concept. I don’t really read a lot, though. I check boingboing every day or two. My pygmy wife just joined the team at Kotaku. 3quarksdaily kind of got away from me. I occasionally look at Defamer, and follow K10K every day. And that’s about it for groupblogs.

Recommend me some good ones. Please leave out comics groupblogs and the Nick Denton stuff, as I’m aware of them. Thanks.

    J Walkenbush has a blog… I think it’s is odd housing and furnishing stuff.

  2. I really like the folks at Backwards City, a daily read for me (along with Boing Boing and this fine site). It’s 85% one guy and 15% everyone else, but it’s still technically a group blog. My blog is technically a group blog too, but it’s really 95% me so who am I kidding?

  3. terpsichoria terpsichoria

    I’d second Metafilter – it’s oppressively cliquey and normative at times, but the links are often good.

  4. is a good group music blog. There, reviewers and enthusiasts weigh in on what makes selected tracks interesting – with often surprising results!

  5. Paul Worthington Paul Worthington

    2blowhards is group arts discussion site, with topics including movies, painting, car design, architecture, yoga and more esoteric stuff.

    Gene Expression at deals with genetics and intelligence, often touching on capitalism and religion.

  6. Leandro Damasceno Leandro Damasceno

    Mostly in portuguese, but there are some webcomics in english and you can look at the pretty pictures.

  7. mark mark

    “Space and Culture is a cross-disciplinary journal of cultural studies that fosters the publication of reflections on a wide range of socio-spatial arenas.”

  8. K. Patrick Glover K. Patrick Glover is where I spend much of my time. It started as a solo blog, but Les uses a lot of guest entries and most entries have extensive threads of conversation backing them up. The focus is mostly on religion and politics with some tech talk thrown in. The slant is atheist / liberal.

  9. Adam Adam

    title pretty much captures it. Not often updated, but topics are usually quite interesting

  10. Have a look at It’s mostly technology/futurist stuff, but we make it entertaining as well as informative.

    Side Note: Mr. Ellis, you are all kinds of awesome.

  11. Why, GIZMODO of course!

  12. Links gleaned from other sites; a lot like boing-boing but casting a wider net.

  13. I’d second (or third or fourth) MetaFilter.

    Coudal Partners combined feed throws up some goodies:

    Sticking up for the home team, Futurismic ( chucks out some good SF/tech/futurism linkage, though I seem to have been filling in all the space for a week or so due to other commitments from the rest of the team, it’s usually a bit more varied.

    Then there’s my blog Velcro City Tourist Board (, which is just like a team blog, only with one contributor. OK, so it’s a shameless plug. Life is short.

    Looking forward to the Edison/Tesla graphic, BTW.

    I’m coming into this one a bit late, but I suppose Web Owls might be useful to you.

    ‘How to search, how to research – tips and techniques, tales from the trenches, and wonderful discoveries. Contains 20% whimsy.’

    And no, it’s not of the ‘obvious stuff for newcomers’ bent.

    I thought you’d never ask

    Bright young 20somethings on either side of the pond (Dublin, California & Aberdeen), knocking off thoughts on politics, life, love, & the usual. Current affairs junkies and one girl who loves her music.

    Worth it.

  18. M. Hunter M. Hunter

    Try MemeFirst.

    Mostly political nonsense from the States, but well written. Plus, the group-bloggers sometimes argue
    with each other. Which can get hilarious.

  19. James A. Owen James A. Owen

    One of the contributors is a professor at NYU with whom I’ve been friends for twenty years. Tghis groupblog has its moments…

  20. Making Light, at

    The home of Teresa Nielsen Hayden and Patrick Nielsen Hayden, and occasionally Jim Macdonald and John M. Ford. The comments section is staggering and often brilliant.

    Cory Doctorow lifts posts from there at least twice a month for BoingBoing.

  21. Eric Eric

    I check out it is a pretty good site – BFAW (Best Friend at Work) content is from a bunch of co-workers passing time by scouring the internet for content.
