The Chronicle of Higher Education has a short story, accompanied with an audio-visual presentation, on mapping the blogosphere. The story refers to a posting on Matthew Hurst’s blog Data Mining. Hurst has posted a couple of maps of the blogosphere. The approach he takes is that those blogs that are more popular (i.e. are linked to more often) will be closer to the core. In the map shown on the left “the larger, denser area of the graph is that part of the blogosphere generally characterised by socio-political discussion (the periphery contains some topical groupings). Above and to the left is that area of the blogosphere concerned with technical discussion and gadgetry.”

“‘We are still waiting for the Mercator map to emerge’ of cyberspace said Martin Dodge, a lecturer in human geography at the University of Manchester, in England.”
