Top data science bloggers, authors, websites, or Twitter profiles worth following is now a popular topic, sure to attract lots of attention. We've published our share, including
Many of these top lists (published by would-be journalists) don't have any sound data science foundations behind them: they have major gaps and other drawbacks, especially those attempting any kind of (arbitrary) ranking.

Here we use real data science to identify 200+ interesting bloggers on our network, reprsenting a fraction of our contributors. This is a follow up to our article 180 leading data science, big data and analytics bloggers, which listed bloggers outside of our network.
To appear in this listing, bloggers must have had at least two accepted postings. The stars after the name indicates the volume of activity. DSC is for a Data Science Central profile, while AB is for an AnalyticBridge profile. Only DSC profiles (and not all of them) have their short bio listed here. We plan to add more bios, as well as not showing the bio for bloggers who request it. New bloggers (since September 2014) are not in the list yet, but they will be in our next updated version. New bloggers can also be found in our weekly digest and its member of the week section, or by reading our featured blogs section. Our next version will provide the date of last posting for each blogger, to help you identify active versus inactive bloggers.
The listing below is ordered by number of stars (representing the number of postings), then in reverse alphabetical order. The data was extracted and processed by our intern Livan, and I helped with the starring system and automated profile selection (for inclusion in the list). When you click on a name, you can find the blogs he/she has posted.
