Recall my BlogPlasma idea? Well Greg Linden at Findory has worked up a first draft of it, which he calls Findory Neighbors. He explains the thinking behind it here. Here’s Searchblog’s “neighborhood.”
I like this, but it needs more work – the alphabetical approach doesn’t work for me (it creates some false positives), and I still want MusicPlasma’s skin. I’m going to try to work with the MusicPlasma folks and Greg to build on this and make it even better!
One thought on “Findory Moves BlogPlasma Closer to Reality”
I have to point out that there was a graduate student that did a similar project couple years ago that did the same by webscraping sites like CNN, ESPN, and others for news and color coded them with bars to show what news sources REALLY paid attention to on their sites based on font size and amount of data.
Amazingly enough, we look to Entertainment news and Sports more than politics, technology, and world news. Maybe not so amazing.
In any case, I’ve been trying to find that project since I’m pretty sure it showed up on slashdot, but I can’t find it for the life of me.
Great idea, but basically yours (BlogPlasma) already done with news sites.
