Since my opinions are usually very much in accord with their writings, I naturally think they're about the smartest people on earth. I've linked to their articles several times in the past, and I expect I'll be doing so for the foreseeable future, because all of the authors are skillful writers and highly readable.

In fact, if this is your first introduction, I envy you the experience of discovery. I've been reading their articles for a couple of years and never felt I had a better use for my time.
Well, except for Range Time, of course.
