It seems to focus on the aussie blogosphere, there is an option to limit your results to aussie blogs, aussie media, or global blogs.
Actually, even before you submit your search you can limit to Australia or World or All (what’s All and what’s World, this kind of implies Australia isn’t in the world)
For each item in the results you can vote, comment, and tag…now that’s different (shoosh up TailRank)
I guess a tag cloud or tag search field will come soon.
You can also expand an item to see the full-text right there and then…now that’s convenient.
You can also click on a source to see all posts from that source.
That’s about it for now, great clean and simple interface, and the response time is speedy (not popular yet I guess)…I like it, let’s see what features will come next.
When I limited the results to aussie blogs for a search on “webride“, the hits were just from my blog, it works (I’m an aussie if people don’t know).
If this is really indexing aussie blogs well, that means I’m the only aussie blogger who has posted about webride…kind of interesting.
NOTE: TalkDigger lists the country the blog post is from, but it thinks my blog is from Ireland because that’s where my blog host lives…how do Gnoos do it.
I wish they listed the blog homepages on the side, so I could check out these fellow aussie bloggers.
Not bad, 38 hits from the media, just a tiny little bit lower than the blogosphere (sarcasm)…hmmm blogs not only inform, but enable all people to be able to inform, it fosters conversation…much more democratic than news.
If traditional news, magazines, journals, and the net (prior to blogs) is all we had, where would web2.0 be at today…
Not everyone can print news, and the news has a capitalist agenda (I’m not being cynical, but any business that runs on profit will do what it has to, to survive - some actually make this their business…hungry hippos). I forgot to add that news can be influenced by a political agenda…who know blogs are still in their infancy, can you trust the blogosphere as a whole or can you trust just bloggers.
All this aside blogs spread memes like wildfire, the advancement of science can now run not walk, actually it can now fly.
