What's happening in the blogosphere?

(The blogosphere being the world of weblogs) One way to find out is to check Technorati. Technorati is a real-time blog search engine. Blogs have really changed the dynamic of the web. Instead of being passive consumers of information, more and more people (and cats!) are participating by running or posting to weblogs. Technorati provides a live view of this "global conversation". It Currently tracks 14.4 million sites and 1.3 billion links. Not only is Technorati great for finding out what the blogosphere is talking about (think tracking a clients product or public opinion), it's also great for finding new blogs that are related to topic that you are interested in.
