The blogdex experiment



As you will be quite aware, this faltered at the first hurdle: boredom. I could not possible keep on checking everyday first thing, when there is so much else more worthwhile to look at and study.

Been writing a bit more in baghdadskies since a bit of reading stimultated me. Unless you are keen on blathering over understanding it is inevitable that your weblogs are going to suffer post-wise.

This blog with its emphasis on weblogging for and by the keen amateur who wanted to keep up with developments - but not let it take over life completely - was a fine idea, even if I say so myself, but I can't be bothered to make sure it, or any of the others I write to are read by the many rather thatn the few by the use of the various arcane technologies available. You know, a weblog can be just a place to put stuff. It doesn't really matter whether anyone else read it. I always write with myself in mind anyway. Its an ideal person like me who I am writing to. He or she would understand what I warble about and find it interesting.

One thing I don't like about communicating in weblogworld, is when a comment I have made on a post in another blog which I might have come across while surfing gets deleted: that shows I really am sensitive behind the steely, objective exterior. I try to inject a smidging of literate levity into otherwise quite dire comments streams, but they tell me this is not done: its flaming or some other faux which I have not kept up with. Which is vaguely reminiscent of some dinner parties I have attended with the majority of attendees just happening to come from the same world of work. You cannot put a word in there. If you do, all heards turn in unison with that unaked question: what does he know about (x) ?

I note that certain literary weblogs soon develop a club into which you cannot join: if it is a woman who is reading books whose titles she wishes to pass on to other like-minded women, it is fatal to comment some drivel if you are not part of the regular group. It is very easy to detect, and of course delete. If its a man who is obsessed with computer technology, let us say software, it is fatal to write in a comment which is in effect only dragging the other comments down through its lack of knowledge. it is not possible to write a comment to a post whic says, this GTR version 3 sound interesting , What does it do exactly? You've got to know already and be able to make a slick remark about it.

So you see, communication on the internet is limited as it in life. You can rarely if ever walk up to someone in the shopping centre to ask what he thinks of Richard Feynman as a teacher. It just doesn't work: you know that when they start to walk slowly backwards away from you.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

Blogdex was an online resource for understanding hot topics of discussion in the blogosphere. The site offered a time-weighted list of links to online content cited by more than one monitored blog in the recent past. Each link received a score based both on the number of different blogs citing it and the recency of those citings; sportsbook, the list thus typically features both popular oddities of the day as well as informative and/or controversial source material for current topics of public debate. Despite its explicit focus on blogs, it can be thought of as the original memetracker, and the inspiration for later commercial sites such as tailrank.com, Digg.com, and other social media sites. http://www.enterbet.com
