Mapping the blogosphere

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.

Barbara has been working for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for about 15 years. In addition to teaching Spanish she runs a somewhat unconventional language center. Prior to this adventure in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and watch the Red Sox. Preferably not all at once, although that could be interesting.
