Musings On Share Your OPML  —  Share Your OPML is already a good blog ranking system, and over time it has the chance to become the definitive ranking and recommendation system for blogs.  And when I saw that, I'm thinking the very long tail of blogs, not just the top 100 or even 1,000

Richard Siklos / New York Times:
From a Small Stream, a Gusher of Movie Facts  —  THE closest that Col Needham gets to corporate life is the Dilbert calendar in his neat office — a converted bedroom in a quaint house in the ancient village of Stoke Gifford, a suburb of Bristol, the harbor city that is 90 minutes west of London by train.
