Wikians versus busblog
Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007
Last month Tony Pierce was deleted from Wikipedia.
I’m trying to get my head around how all these various DIY cultures and their status metrics– wikipedia, blogospheric, journalistic, high school, Yahoobuzz, Myspace — compare and clash.
What does it say that Technorati, the service lazy journalists most love to quote when it comes to blog popularity, ranks PerezHilton as blogger #45 despite the fact that Yahoo ranks him as the most searched for blogger? I’ve got a longer essay brewing on this subject, but figure I haven’t posted in a while so should get this out the door.
