A Picture Of Weblogs (rhizomic hallucinations)

The above applet is a rendering of a great many weblogs, and all the links that interconnect them. Each little box represents a weblog (and each can be clicked on, highlighting it and showing` its name and URL), and each line represents a link. When a particular weblog is selected, outgoing links will be colored tan, incoming links red, and mutual links black.

This applet is updated once per day, at midnight, pacific time, by reading 500 of the pages. This means that the above is not quite “live,” in that only 500 pages are updated every day. A necessary concession, given that reading thousands of web pages translates into many hundreds of megabytes. A log of the most recent run is available for the curious.
