I’ve been running this thing on my blog for almost 4 months now, and I’ve just been too lazy to release it (even though the release process for now took maybe 6 minutes). Here is the 0.1 version of the technorati_api plugin. I’m submitting this to the plugin registry as soon as I post this.
In order to use this, you first must get a Technorati API Key. Other than that, unzip the file and put it in your plugin directory and you will find the variable $technorati_api::technorati_cosmos populated with your cosmos (when Technorati is up, which sometimes it isn’t – like right now.)
