You may have noticed that the last few posts have started incorporating "Technorati Tags" at the bottom of every post... you may have clicked on some of these hyperlinks and they may have led you nowhere... (although those who clicked on the "Garlic" hyperlink of my Gilroy post may have seen some interesting results)...
So what the hell is technorati??? Technorati is basically a blog search engine, and currently tracks over 50 million blogs on the internet. Technorati is the recognized authority on what's going on in the world of weblogs. According to Technorati, (and this is also a general opinion on Web 2.0 and Social Networking), "the power of weblogs is that they allow millions of people to easily publish their ideas, and millions more to comment on them. Blogs are a fluid, dynamic medium, more akin to a 'conversation' than to a library — which is how the Web has often been described in the past". With an increasing number of people reading, writing, and commenting on blogs, the way we use the Web is shifting in a fundamental way. Instead of being passive consumers of information, more and more Internet users are becoming active participants.
So if you click on "Garlic" on the Gilroy post... watch what happens. It'll tell you who posted on garlic recently... and the interesting thing is... most of the posts will probably related to the festival... :-)
So, say you're interested in something I've had to say... maybe if you click on the tag... you may find similar posts or posts on the same subject. That's the power of technorati. So if the links don't work, don't fret... they're only there for my own fun and curiousity.
