Some people like http://www.ora600.be/aggregator
An interesting take: http://theappslab.com/2009/04/14/all-your-comments-are-belong-to-us/ Somewhere (ah, http://oracledoug.com/serendipity/index.php?/archives/1387-Blog-roll-Maintenance.html ) I posted I rely on people to direct me to good blogs, but I'm not sure anyone really understood that.
My viewpoint is like Steve Howard's, though I would sometimes look at orana when I was bored and wondering if I was missing anything. But last week I had the same thought as Mladen.
I have tended to simply following a few blogs that I know are good, and the links off of those. Though it is pretty funny or sad how long some good bloggers have gone without blogging (give that noons guy a kick in the pants :-). Twitter and such may be cutting into the activity of the bleeding edge types, I still don't get it, though recently one of the trains I take has started giving updates ( metrolinktrains.com ), now _that's_ useful - if the data is complete - amtrak has a website train-on-time screen (and 800 number), which can be really good, or have db problems...
