Business blogs

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 19 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

I used to read the Business Thinker’s Trends Digest religiously every week. The author read seemingly hundreds of business publications each week and wrote summaries of some of the most interesting articles. Then the author moved the Digest to be part of her PR firm’s Web site, then stopped maintaining it regularly (it was last updated in March). Combined with a lack of an RSS feed, and I simply don’t keep track of it any more.

I’ve been looking for a decent blog that links to business news and trends, and haven’t found much. I came across A Penny For… today, and its interesting, but I want more. Up2Speed looks promising. Anyone know of some good business and marketing blogs?

Fast Company has a blog. And I know that another major business publication has a blog in the works. I forgot to ask the person who told me about it if it was a secret, so I can't say which publication yet. What business blogs do you read?
