Popular blog searches

I was looking at the Top Searches on Technorati today. Some search keywords were expected, like "Britney Spears" and "Windows Vista". Others were completely foreign to me, as I had never of the term before, like "boskone" (a science fiction convention that just took place last week) and "barcamplondon2" (a conference called barcamp taking place in London -- why people are searching on "barcamplondon2" instead of just "barcamp" is a mystery to me).

I'd like to see Technorati expand its top search list to resemble Google's Zeitgeist, featuring breakdowns by country and also an archive of past popular searches.

Noisy blogs

There are a growing number of blogs that feature videos on their home page. While I think video is great and have done my share of surfing video sharing sites, I get annoyed when blogs play a video when I arrive to the site. I'm often listening to music on my computer when I'm surfing, so when I get to a blog that automatically rolls a video, I get distracting noise blaring in my headphones. I have to find where on the page the video window is and then stop it, assuming a Stop button is even present. Why can't bloggers who put videos on their blogs let the readers choose to start them if they want to??

K City

Following up on the cartoon theme from the last post, K City is another comic strip blog that I found to be entertaining. BTW, the focus of most of the entries is on relationships, if you happen to enjoy that type of humor.
