When Worlds Collide

Yesterday, Doc Searls wondered why JupiterMedia analyst Jared Blank wasn't getting any Technorati love for his blog, which just isn't getting any attention.

Dan Lyke has a harsh explanation, and Scoble just calls "bullpucky" on the question.

Entertainingly, the fact that he mentioned Jared's blog means Doc managed to "help out" by getting Scoble, Dan, and whoever else happened to notice to link to the thing at all, in which case the answer to the original question is now apparent: he wasn't turning up in Technorati because no one wanted to link to him, not because Technorati was broken or missing something.

Disclosure: I freelance for JupiterMedia on the Web content side.


Incestuous self-referential blogosphere controversies... boring... Losing... consciousness....

The real reason is that there are only six people out there accessing blogs. The bloggers are too busy blogging about their blogs.
