Blogosphere Echosystem Relaunched on "The Truth Laid Bear"

In our periodic scan of Blogdex, we noticed that attention was again being paid to The Blogosphere Echosystem, one of the original attempts to measure the influence of individual weblogs. In an article on The Truth Laid Bear called The Ecosystem Returns, N.Z. Bear explains that the new version of the Echosystem is automated and based on PHP and mySQL.

Although the system is now automated, it does not appear to be using Weblogs.com's changes.xml to determine what to crawl. This probably reduces the amount of bandwidth that rebuilding the Ecosystem consumes. But, it also means that most weblogs need to be added to the system manually. Weblogs can be added to the Ecosystem using TTLB Blogosphere Echosystem: Add Your Weblog form.
