Blog Day: 5 blogs you need to read - a day late, but hey

Travolution was busily attending to other things yesterday, so missed the official Global Blog Day (fancy doing it on a Sunday!?!).

Anyway, for the fourth Blog Day, the idea is that bloggers point to blogs that are "preferably different from their own culture, point of view and attitude".

Our five:

Buzzmachine: Authored by respected former journo and academic Jeff Jarvis, recommended reading for anyone interested in digital publishing and the impact of the web on media.

Drama 2.0 Show: Brilliant Web 2.0 debunking site. Waspish, well-informed, often correct.

Left Field: Analysis and commentary on the airline industry from David Field. Part of the FlightGlobal suite of blogs.

Valleywag: Sideways look at the West Coast (primarily) tech/web community. Doesn't pull any punches. Often very funny.

FAIL Blog: For pure light relief, the best collection from around the planet of daft pictures and cock-ups.

NB: Thanks Les Explorers for the namecheck.

Tamara: of the 5, Drama 2.0 is my favourite. :-)
