“Celebrity” Mac Bloggers?

Question: If you had to list the top five celebrity Mac bloggers, who would they be?

My Answer: In no particular order, and completely off the top of my head: John Gruber, Todd Dominey, James Duncan Davidson, the Unsanity Folks, and Steven Frank.

You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

  1. Zeldman!

    Oh, and that Maniacal Rage fellow. Though if I don't get an xPad update that changes the CMD-LEFT/RIGHT shortcuts I might change my mind about that. 😉

  2. Of course, you're not including yourself I see.

    What - no love for Zeldman, Dan Cederholm, Tantek, or Doug Bowman?

    I'd definitely agree with Gruber, and Todd Dominey though. I'm a web standards nut :-\

  3. Heh. Some web standards nut you are... (ahem). What about Richard Rutter (Clagnut)? Granted, he's only had one for a few weeks. 🙂

    Brent Simmons ( 🙂 ), Dave Hyatt, Rob Griffiths? (not technically a personal blog of his own making, but...)

    And if you expand your definition of Mac celebrity bloggers to include celebrity bloggers who use a Mac, the pool gets very deep indeed. Kottke, Meg, Cory Doctorow, Doc Searls, Mattafilter,, Ben Brown etc etc

  4. Hmm, in addtion to those mentioned, I like xlab and Unofficial Apple Weblog (but I don't like the name.)

  5. No offense, but I would say the standards bloggers don't count as "Mac bloggers". Looking at my subscriptions:

    John Gruber

    Dave Hyatt

    Brent Simmons

    Steven Frank

    I read other blogs by semi-known Mac people:

    Mike Pinkerton (Camino)

    Buzz Anderson (PodWorks / Apple employee)

    Jeremy Zawodny (Yahoo! / just bought a PowerBook)

    And this guy who works for FSS. 😛

    They're not tech bloggers, they're Mac-using bloggers. They're editors at Tor Books, meaning they get to read lots of good SF and Fantasy (etc) before anyone else gets a chance.
