This is only one piece, of one conversation, at one point in time… but never before have I seen a more accurate depiction of blog-based conversations and communication than this graphic.
This is Matthew Hurst’s interactive map of the blogosphere. Mr. Hurst is Director of Science and Innovation, Nielsen BuzzMetrics; co-creator of BlogPulse. (according to his blog, Data Mining, Text Mining and Social Media)
Note… it is an interactive map, which means each dot is an actual hyperlink to a blog. Drag your mouse over the dots and see where it links. The truly geeky (or
unadventurous impatient) can search the source code of the page for specific links.
…and no, we did not find LLU anywhere on this map. Pshaw.
