Patently-O is the patent blog of Dennis Crouch, a law professor (and previously a patent lawyer). A minority of posts are by guest authors.
The blog is not against software patents, but is also not rampantly pro-swpat, and has allowed anti-swpat articles to be published as guest posts.
The quality of information is very good and so ESP Wiki includes a lot of links to Patently-O and reading it is recommended for it's technical quality.
In September 2014, a few months after the US Supreme Court's Alice ruling, Crouch suggested amending the US patent law by adding a final line: "Patent eligibility extends to the full extent permitted by the Constitution."
