What Blogs Are In-House Counsel at Big Companies Reading?

I was talking to some friends of mine, and the question turned to which kinds of lawyers tended to read which kinds of blogs. My sense is that accurate survey data is hard to come by on this, and naturally much turns on whom you ask (so that my question here will surely yield a skewed set of answers, and skewed in several different ways). But I thought that even an impressionistic sense would be helpful, or at least better than our own guesswork.

So if you're in the in-house counsel's office at a big company, or know people who are, please let me know what blogs you read. Please feel free to post anonymously, if you prefer, but if you could include some sense of what industry or company type you're in, that would be good. Or if you'd like to e-mail me at volokh at law.ucla.edu, that would be good, too. Many thanks!
