Two pieces of information about the blogosphere

Burn This! - The FeedBurner Weblog has links to two very interesting sites. First see Technorati 100 Here Today Gone Tomorrow which details the movement into, out of, and within the Technorati top 100. It's a very interesting read...there is much more movement than I would have expected.

Second, I found a very cool graphic illustrating the growth of the blogosphere from Feedburner's launch up to the recent point where they announced they have 200,000 feeds under management. If you like data viz you will like this moves. LOL

Viewer's Guide

  • Blue drops represent text feeds, orange drops are podcasts.
  • The placement and position of the drops are random.
  • The pace at which the drops drop is representative of the general growth curve of all FeedBurner-managed feeds mapped to our actual dataset.
  • There are roughly 1,200 drops from start to finish, so imagine that number times 200 for a sense of the actual scale.
  • The larger drops are mapped to the emergence of the most highly subscribed feeds.
  • Turn on your audio to get a better sense for the initially sparse and then rapidly growing number of rich media feeds.
