Best Canadian Technology Bloggers

Well, we always knew he was good, but it was a real bonus to see Stephen Ibaraki's name on the list compiled by Shane Schick from ComputerWorld Canada of the top 10 Canadian Technology Bloggers. Shane prefaces his list in the following manner:

Let’s make this absolutely clear: this list is subjective. But isn’t that what an IT manager would want — someone who’s already browsed around a lot to tell them where they should be adding an RSS feed or a favourite to their browser?

And he writes the following about Stephen:

why him? Known as the IT Manager Connection, this blog is run through Microsoft’s advisory program, but Ibaraki remains a key contributor, interviewing countless executives (such as General Motors of Canada’s CIO) and turning them into easy-to-download podcasts. He also serves as a sort of online liaison between the vendor community and associations like the Canadian Information Processing Society (CIPS), giving him a good understanding of issues across the board.

The complete list is below. So if you're an IT Manager and you don't have a lot of time to sift through everything that's out there, this would be a good list to start with:

  1. Mark Evans
  2. Rob Hyndman
  3. Maggie Fox
  4. Mark H. Goldberg
  5. Stephan Ibraraki
  6. Michael Geist
  7. Alec Saunders
  8. Kate Trgovac
  9. Jevon MacDonald
  10. IT World Canada Blogs

    I also recommend IT practitioners to volunteer with community and societal groups. And to reach out to the schools to mentor and speak — driving passion for the computing field as a great career.

    Thank you Marie for your comments.
