Best Urban-Development Echo Chamber: Mike Dahmus, Shawn "Shilli" Shillington, and Chris Bradford

While you may not always agree with them, these three local bloggers – Mike Dahmus of M1EK's Bake Sale of Bile infamy, Austinist Urban Development Editor Shilli (né Shawn Shillington), and Chris Bradford, aka the Austin Contrarian – bring a refreshing, sometimes contrary perspective to Austin's ongoing development discussion, airing thoughts and facts sometimes contrary to developers, neighborhoods, and the Chronicle itself. (But we're big enough to take it!)
