Will check this night again.
There is a certain sameness to a lot of the blogrolls I see. Many of those first attracted to blogging share interests in software and networking. To a first approximation, blogspace today is a community of like-minded people. But we're starting to see hives emerge. Among Radio bloggers, for example, clusters of lawyers and academics have appeared. (Link)
"Blogs are our Avatars. I was mulling over the difference between posting in mailing lists and posting to your own blog. We can communicate equally well in both media; and both media provide for a public record. So what accounts for the growing preference of people to have their own blog? It's simple, the presentation of a person in a mailing list is fragmented, there is no coherance ... their personality is scatterd amoung their different posts. Not so with a blog, one's personality comes through loud and clear." (Link)
This page is the result of several different processes. Inspired by Book Watch, I created a script that visits newly updated weblogs hourly via Weblogs.com (if you'd like to let me know that there are books on your page, use weblogs.com's ping form). The script then looks for links to Amazon.com items and saves them. I then aggregate all that information together to find the most frequently mentioned books. My scoring mechanism is weighted to favor recently mentioned books, so that the list remains fresh, and offers new insight into what the weblog community is reading at the moment.
This is just the beginning. As data accumulates, I'll be increasing the feature set so that people will eventually be able to receive personalized lists of books that are being read by your friends... and your friends' friends, and your friends' friends' friends, etc. (Link)
