Myelin Produces an Improved Version of the Weblog Ecosystem

Earlier this month, CTDATA.com pointed to two metadirectory of weblogs that attempt to relate the major weblogs to each other. In our original article we said, "Another take on this concept is myelin: blogging ecosystem. Not sure how Myelin differs from The Truth Laid Bear, actually."

It turns out that The Truth Laid Bear's Blogosphere Ecosystem is the static output of a program last run in July, while Myelin's Blogging Ecosystem is actually the product of a daemon written in Python that is rerun periodically. On that basis alone, we recommend that weblog fans use the Blogging Ecosystem as a tool to better understand the interrelationships between weblogs.

One question remains, however: why aren't CTDATA.com or any of the other weblogs we run part of the Blogging Ecosystem dataset?
