Duh, a thinking blog?

thinkingbloggerpf8.jpg Whoa, been tagged by none other than Randy Neal in the Thinking Blogger Awards. My mamma would be proud.
Here’s five.
1) Mathew Ingram, technology writer for the Toronto Globe and Mail. He’s always interesting, such as with this one on Robert Scoble and Chris Pirillo experimenting with Ustream and Twiter.
2) Bob Sutton’s Work Matters. Hey, a college professor should make you think, right? He’s got a lot of good advice and interesting research and ask him a question and more likely than not, he’ll answer it. In this one, he points to an online article he recently wrote.
3) Ex-Scrippser and now a Gatehouse Guy, Howard Owens is a prolific blogger who’s not wishy-washy when it comes to opinions.
4) He’s been parrying or partying with Yahoo too much lately to be blogging, methinks, but my sole homie pick is Jay Small’s Small Initiatives. I liked this recent post. (That’s not say there’s not a lot of thought-provoking homies hereabouts; there are.)
5) I find Eric Berlin always a good read. Saturday’s post was on blog strategy.
So there, five tagged. They’ve probably been tagged earlier, but anyway Sunday morning fun. It’s definitely random because almost every blog I read on a regular basis makes me think — or tells me something I didn’t know.
Da rules (as I understand them) for the Thinking Blog Award:

  1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
  2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
  3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

I believe this particular blog memetag was started by “The Thinking Blog” on Feb. 11, 2007 in a blog post where the writer both starts a memetag and promises not to participate in them in the future. Huh?
Are these things silly? Why, yes, that’s why we do them.
