Now, after a bit of the SxSW ‘blogger koolaid db has entered the fray.
Here’s some of the other local folk well worth reading (far from exhaustive, presented in no particular order):
arse poetica Eclectic commentary on the world and national politics.
OrangePolitics.org Our local progressive political salon.
SqueeeeeezeThePulp Our other local political hotspot.
GreeneSpace Erudite and dense intellectual observations on new urbanism, history, Virginia Woolf and the occassional local political fracas. Each post an education
Is That Legal? Eric’s the man! Legal and historical perspectives on current affronts to our civil liberties plus dead-on commentary of the local scene.
dent Our invaluable IndyWeek’s scurrilous political pamphleteering.
Blogads Henry’s business model keeps many ‘blogs alive.
The Real Paul Jones Paul’s been networked from day one. Must read for keeping up on local and international trends in tech, civil liberties, poetry and local events.

Local Ecology Policy wonk Teri’s perspective on local government, cats and ecology.
Dave Johnson’s Blogging Roller Dave’s like Roy with corporate support. Mr. Roller’s software provides the plumbing for both Sun’s and IBM’s blogging communities (scary!). Java, OSS and all-things blogging.
