A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

RE: State of the Blogosphere, October 2005 Part 1: On Blogosphere Growth

David Silfry of Technorati fame has updated his blog with a new entry about the state of the Blogosphere.
As of October 2005, Technorati is now tracking 19.6 Million weblogs The total number of weblogs tracked continues to double about every 5 months The blogosphere is now over 30 times as big as it was 3 years ago, with no signs of letup in growth About 70,000 new weblogs are created every day About a new weblog is created each second 2% - 8% of new weblogs per day are fake or spam weblogs Between 700,000 and 1.3 Million posts are made each day About 33,000 posts are created per hour, or 9.2 posts per second An additional 5.8% of posts (or about 50,000 posts/day) seen each day are from spam or fake blogs, on average

[Via Sifry's Alerts]

His entries tend to be quite informative, but are purely his [Technoratis] take on the Blogosphere. He seems to be quite encouraged with the Stats and states that the growth indications are still there.

What I would like to hear is more information about his take on the API's how Technorati plans on leading this area. My personal opinion is that Technoartia have made a great start, but there is so much they could do to add extra value to their services with regards to API's.

One of these things is to let the community know that they are taking note of feature requests! It appears that on their Wiki, they don't even confrim that certain suggestions are helpful or unhelpful or if a certain feature is a really cool idea.
