Ten blogs every Mac admin should know about

by on January 16, 2010 » Add more comments.

Need to load up your RSS reader with loads of Mac goodness? Mac Admin Corner just not quite enough for you? There are plenty of Mac experts out there sharing their knowledge with the world. Here’s a list of sites that I follow.

  1. Krypted.com
    Charles Edge has written many Mac Server Books including the Enterprise Mac Administrator’s Guide and Beginning Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server: From Solo Install to Enterprise Integration. Charles also frequently updates his blog over at Krypted.com.
  2. SystemsBoy.com
    Very interesting to read, he has a great writing style.
  3. Managing OS X
    Greg is one of the top contributors and well respected guru’s on many of the Mac lists. He has written many useful articles including MCX, dslocal, and Leopard and managing Office 2008 with MCX, and much more.
  4. IrisInk
    Intelligent posts, great to read.
  5. AFP548.com
    One of the most well known Mac IT sites, run by a couple Apple SE’s (I don’t remember their exact titles), this site is also home to a couple useful tools including InstaDMG and KeyMinder. Their forums are also pretty lively. Summarizing everything this site, and the next one on the list would require entire articles.
  6. MacEnterprise.org
    Originally macosxlabs.org, this site is the combined efforts of several businesses as well as higher education instututions to provide a central repository of collaborations. I’m not sure it’s considered a “blog” but it’s worth making the list anyway. Best known for their [usually] monthly webcasts as well as the mailing list.
  7. Unflying Object
    He claims it’s not a blog, but it sure looks, smells and tastes like one to me. Useful posts too.
  8. eWeek
    Mostly IT corporate related news, their Mac section occasionally posts some interesting commentary.
  9. ComputerWorld
    Ryan Faas, the author of iPhone for Work: Increasing Productivity for Busy Professionals (Books for Professionals by Professionals) and other books is a regular columnist at ComputerWorld.
  10. Explanatory Gap
    Nigel Kersten is a sysadmin with Google and a Mac wiz to say the least.

I know there are a ton of other relevant bloggers out there but I limited this list to those that have been posting recently. My site would not have made the list since I took close to a year off, but it’s my site and I make (or break) the rules. 🙂

Quite honestly, when you look at the number of competing Windows and Linux IT sites, we are definitely in the minority. I expect to see more and more resources (blog or otherwise) become available to the Mac management community.

Have I missed any that should be noted? Do you have a blog of your own you’d like to share? Share your comments!
