Two of my favorite blogs are The Volokh Conspiracy, written by a bunch of libertarianish legal academics, and Language Log, about linguistics. I really enjoy seeing how folks from very different disciplines reason and express themselves in writing (lawyers in particular are especially clear thinkers). This morning I started wondering if I'm missing out on other equally great groupblogs.
So a question: what blog do you read from outside the field of technology? I don't mean news / politics / gadgets / hobbies / etc, I mean something with a vaguely academic bent.
And a related question: do you think there are any deveopment-related blogs that a non-developer (say a lawyer, or a linguist) would enjoy reading? The only thing I can think of is Artima, perhaps.
