A picture of weblogs

A picture of weblogs is what they call it. I was looking thru my site's referral reports and found that it was indexing me. Pretty cool idea to draw the incoming and outgoing links from every site... you should see MeFi's node on it - it's huge.

This is absolutely astounding.

Unfortunately, I wasn't indexed. Though my node will undoubtedly be quite small, I've since added my name to the list. Thanks for a great link!

They have me linked. Once. And it's an old URL.

I feel so insignificant

I'd seen this quite some time ago and have been recently looking for it again but with no luck. Thanks for the reminder.

The spiral does indeed take care of some problem with link obscuring, but it creates another. Only on the outer edges can you see weblogs with many links. The inner half or more are completely obscured. I'd like to see it with the spiral were much more spread out...

There are a couple big sites that everybody links to and then the rest all link to one or two. I think the message is that there should be more sites linking to more than just MeFi or usr/bin/girl. Let's spread it out a little more.

Also the base list was drawn from dmoz it seems...
