Mapping the blogosphere


We make a lot of noise about things like the “blogosphere”, the ultra-intra-connected network of blogs around the globe that this blog is part of. And as blogging culture creates its own universe, somewhere between news, humor, and commentary, it becomes more and more intangible. That doesn’t mean that some enterprising young dataminers can’t make sense of it.

Indeed, over at the datamining Typepad site, I found these amazing illustrations of the blogosphere using different data sets. The image above is from one of my faves. If you’re into blogging, take a look and feel small.
