The Truth Laid Bear Develops "Blogosphere Ecosystem"

We have seen a number of webloggers point to a site called The Truth Laid Bear and a page on that site called Blogosphere Ecosystem, which attempts to measure how weblogs link to each other. This is an attempt to capture the number of links from one weblog to another within the subset of weblogs that the The Truth Laid Bear tracks.

This sort of automated weblog crawling has been popular for a while. Blogdex has a similar service called Social Network Explorer, but it only works from the perspective of a single weblog that is specified in the page request. Another take on this concept is myelin: blogging ecosystem. Not sure how Myelin differs from The Truth Laid Bear, actually.
