StateTech, October 1, 2013

In 2012, StateTech editors compiled a list of IT blogs, and it has been one of our most popular pages for over a year. While it offered variety and substance, we decided to crowdsource submissions for the 2013 version.

When we asked the StateTech community to help us create a useful resource for thought leaders in state and local government technology, we didn’t expect such an enthusiastic response. Thanks to our readers — who submitted 34 blogs and voted more than 300 times — the 2013 must-read IT blog list is more valuable than ever.

This year’s list includes county CIOs, media mainstays, hyperlocal blogs and nonprofit organizations. A wide variety of topics — everything from open data and mobility to networking and cloud computing — are covered by experienced IT pros. You’ll find news, reviews, opinions and analyses of every tech topic affecting local governments today. The list below appears in no particular order. You can follow all of the bloggers on our 2013 Twitter list.
