Anjo Anjewierden comes with three postings aptly titled Passion and Profession
He and Lilia and Stephanie have been working on using linking data and especially words and cocnepts used in postings to try and figure out whether or not blogger communities emerge and exist. To me Passion and Profession have a strong connection, so I am not really surprised by pretty pictures like the one in this posting.
It states more or less what I felt were my blogosphere-surroundings. Intriguing nonetheless, especially if you start dreaming about the applications you could build on this if communities are traceable by spidering this way! So Anjo, don’t worry about sending spiders to my door to gather your data! I also certainly like the way your work has been evolving in this area since you first showed us gathered data at Blogwalk back in March 2004, and later at BlogTalk 2.
