Techcrunch writes about the most popular VC blogs according to google reader. The number of subscribers can be analogued to the number of votes (ie via majority rule, Garage Technology Ventures is the most popular with 17555 subscribers. However, they are quick to say that these numbers dont really give information about the "best" blog - perhaps Guy Kawasaki is just hte best at advertising the blog. Other blogs may be more often read (ie worth more points in the Borda election) making them better blogs, but we just don't see due to the way the data was found.
