Wow!  August 31 crept up on me.  It’s Blog Day 2009 already.  On Blog Day,  we are asked to list 5 blogs which may be of interest to our readers then link back to Blogday.org with your post.

  1. Frugal Tech points you to the best free and open source solutions to everyday tech problems.  I recently used one of their tutorials to set up a home server based on freeNAS.
  2. Michael Geist: Ottawa Law professor gives reasoned commentary on copyright, privacy and technology news.  (Looks like I picked him last year too.  Still the best source for a Canadian slant on the copyfight).
  3. GraphJam: Music and Pop Culture in Charts and Graphs. Let us explain them. OK, I’m a nerd.  And this is really funny stuff.
  4. Blaise Alleyne I thought I was the only Catholic, folk singing, songwriting, copyfighting, linux user in Canada.  Apparently there are at least two.
  5. hughmcguire.net Hugh McGuire, the co-founder of Book Oven and LibriVox blogs about writing and publishing in the Internet age.

Those  are my picks. Join the conversation and share some of your favorite blogs. You can write them on your own blog and tag it BlogDay2009 or send me some feedback on the blog at http://.ductapeguy.net by email at ductapeguy@gmail.com or by calling 206-337-0611.

Michelle Rumball

Michelle Rumball has been a fixture of the Toronto Music scene for almost 20 years.  In the early 90s she was lead singer for folk-rock legends, The Grevious Angels.  She now writes and performs as a solo singer-songwriter, as a member of the new trio Beauty Saloon, and in a number of bands around Toronto.  I caught up to her at the wonderful Rockin’ The Cradle series of concerts promoted by my sister as a venue for people who love music with babies and young children.

Taylor Davison

Taylor Davison is a high school student and songwriter.  We had a chat on the Sunday morning of our  our songwriting group’s winter getaway weekend.  My apologies if I sound tired.  It was a music filled weekend.
