Our office resides in Athens, GA about an hour from Atlanta. A work news post noting Atlanta tech blogs was strange to me. There is plenty HERE. Why ignore all the great local stuff?
And I do not mean my blog. I post too infrequently to really matter and mostly ignore technology of late.
- Four Athens is a technology incubator here in Athens. They organize networking events and have a good calendar of various tech meetings happening here. (Twitter)
- Free IT Athens is a local volunteer organization who help re-use computers and free software for the needy. They recently brought Richard Stallman here. (Twitter)
- Vitamin C makes healthcare software. (Twitter)
- The Accidental CIO is run by the Chief Information Officer for UGA. Work is related to UGA, but not part of their organizational structure. Tim has a seat on the search committee for our replacement CIO because, well, who we select is critically important to UGA. (Twitter)
- The Hatch is an Athens makerspace. (Twitter)
- Mark Fennell is an Athens DBA / web developer. (Twitter)
If there is something IT-related going on in Athens, then these two are probably writing about it.
- Glenn Stovall is an Athens freelance developer who writes about both tech and running a business. (Twitter)
- Smith Ellis is a UGA web developer. (Twitter)
Blogs are like so 2000s. They are sunsetting as the readers spend more time on Facebook and Twitter. All of you probably noticed I put links to the Twitter feeds for those blogs. That’s because much of the conversations who used to occur on blogs have shifted to Twitter. Actually, most of the blogs listed above I found through Twitter. Some other Athens Tech Tweeters:
- Hack For Athens holds an annual hackathon to tackle local issues.
- Athens Women In Tech is a special interest group of Developers of Athens.
- Hackyard Athens
- CHUGALUG which stands for “Classic Hackers University of Georgia Linux Users Group”
