Diagram of the Blogosphere

Here’s an article that describes the dynamic of the blogosphere as a new meme rises and falls. It is a pretty interesting description of the phenomenon. The article seems to say that the major media has a part in the story – a misreported story fuels the blogging activity while “when mainstream provides an even-handed and well researched story about the blogosphere story, often this draws the blogosphere story to a conclusion.” Interesting stuff.
