I’ve been tagged by Diane Levin with the 5 blogs & 5 blawgers meme. The idea is to list five great non-law blogs and then tag five law-bloggers to do the same. My five:

  • Good Morning Gloucester. Capt. Joe works the docks in Gloucester, Mass., where he is never without his camera. His photos chronicle daily life in this seaport city, from sunrises to tattoos to seafood.
  • Media Nation. Dan Kennedy, a Boston-area journalist and assistant professor at Northeastern University School of Journalism, covers “the press, politics, technology, culture and other passions.”
  • New Media Musings. Writer and technology entrepreneur J.D. Lasica describes this blog as “charting the rise of open, democratic, grassroots media.” He also finds some fun tech toys.
  • B.L. Ochman’s WhatsNextBlog. Marketing and public relations consultant Ochman focuses her blog on Internet marketing and social media. I like that she does not tolerate marketing bulls**t.
  • Slashdot. The tag line says it all: “News for nerds. Stuff that matters.” You’ll even find some of that dreaded “law” stuff covered here.

And now my five tag-ees:
