Jim Waldo has a weblog. So does Ken Arnold, Guido van Rossum, and a bunch of other interesting systems designers. They're collected at Artima, a community set up by Bill Venners centered on his consulting business.

Waldo is one of the authors on the best paper I've ever read on distributed system design, A Short Note on Distributed Computing. Essential reading.
