Blogging About Blogging IV
Blogdex is a "system built to harness the power of personal news, amalgamating and organizing personal news content into one navigable source, moving democratic media to the masses." That means that you can track the top 25 links recently mentioned in blogs around the world. It's a good way to keep on top of the various memes transmitted between bloggers -- and to catch up on blogging-related news and commentary. It's also a useful tool for self-referential and -obsessing bloggers who care about whether they're linking to the hippest and most happening blogs and Web resources. I was slightly pleased that I had only come across four of the top 25 links recently... and was thankful that the list included a clever essay on the implausibility of the Death Star's trash compactor.
