Gene Quinn, at IPWatchdog, has been working on developing a list of the top 50 patent blogs based on a combination of objective and subjective criteria.

These are all great blogs and trying to put them in any kind of “ranking” makes little sense since many are narrowly tailored and have different emphasis and audiences.  I was pleasantly surprised that I’ve had a chance to meet many of the bloggers at various events and I’m going to make it a goal to meet all of them.

Without fanfare, here is the top 50:
