Blog search engines and newsfeeds

Blogdex -- The Web Diffusion Index (MIT)
Discover the most recently discussed news! Blogdex uses the links made by webloggers as a proxy to the things they are talking about. Webloggers typically contextualize their writing with hypertext links which act as markers for the subjects they are discussing. These markers are like tags placed on wild animals, allowing Blogdex to track a piece of conversation as it moves from weblog to weblog.
