We just launched a major refresh to www.technorati.com. Some of the changes are subtle, some are big, and they all build on a bunch of improvements we've been making to the site since January. We've been spending a lot of time listening to you, and incorporating an enormous amount of feedback into this refresh - dozens of changes to both our look and feel and to our backend systems to make Technorati more useful to you.
As I've blogged about before, the world has changed. Whereas folks using Technorati a couple of years ago were predominantly coming to us to search the blogosphere to surface the conversations that were most interesting to them, today they are increasingly coming to our site to get the 360 degree context of the Live Web - blogs of course, but also user-generated video, photos, podcasts, music, games and more. They want all the good stuff out there, all in real-time, and we're using the power of 80 million bloggers to help organize it and make it fun to browse; using the wisdom of crowds as a mirror on ourselves. From Dave Sifry creator of Technorati.
I don't really know what this means. This place says..."NO LONGER BLOG-CENTRIC" about Technorati changes. But I checked and it seems there is still a ranking system. Kawasaki's blog has risen to #19. Mine is at #2,481.
I have listed the painting above, titled, Kawasaki Krump, on eBay. Here is the link, click. I have raised my asking price to $300.00, which I believe is an incredibly good price especially considering the year long amount of entertainment and history now associated with this painting. I had a good idea. I went to Dave Sifry's blog, bout Technorati, and told him about my quest to beat Guy Kawasaki to top ten rank at his Technorati...and I also asked him if these changes will affect my challenge to beat my adversary, Guy Kawasaki. I also asked him if he would consider writing about my attempt to beat Kawasaki. I hope he responds. I still plan on giving one half of the profit of Kawasaki Krump to a charity of Guy Kawasaki's choice.
I hope you, kind visitor, will link my blog to yours and go visit my sale of Kawasaki Krump.
