Blog Search = Political Analysis

By - July 22, 2004

From Dave Sifry’s blog (he’s the founder of Technorati):

A few minutes ago CNN announced that Technorati will be providing real-time analysis of the political blogosphere at next week’s Democratic National Convention. I will be on-site in CNN’s convention broadcast center, along with Mary Hodder, and I’ll be providing regular on-air commentary on what bloggers are saying about politics and the convention. And on Sunday, July 25, we’ll launch a new section of our site for political coverage: politics.technorati.com. This site will make it easy for bloggers,
journalists, and anyone interested in politics to see the postings of the most linked-to political bloggers, to track the ideas with the fastest-growing buzz, and to monitor conversations in thousands of other political blogs. CNN.com will link to this site, and we’ll be updating the CNN site with the latest from the blogosphere.

    The folks at Feedster have put together a compilation (searchable) of “official” DNC blogs.

  2. Seems that occasionally Technorati runs into some scalability issues. About 5% of the time I get blank results for the query that fetched results before, and the other 5% it’s the php_error telling you something rather.

    But maybe they are beefing up their infrastructure as I type this.

    Yes, you’re absolutely right, we’re experienceing some growing pains. We’re working really really hard to (a) Make sure that everything stays up 100% of the time, and that service response time is always under 1 second. There’s a lot to do, so I apologise in advance for the issues.

    We’ve been pretty astounded by the popularity of the service and the explosive growth of the blogosphere, but are 100% committed to being of service to you. Apologies again for the issues, there’s no excuse, really. We’re working day and night to fix things.
