Blog mining in the spotlight

According to Technorati's State of the Blogosphere the number of blogs doubles every 5 months, but around 8% of them are spam blogs and around 6% of daily posts are coming from them. These numbers are scary so something has to be fixed, Chris Pirillo wants Google to fix Blogspot - check the comments via Memeorandum - and the conversation is heating up.

Towards getting better information from the blogosphere, as reported by Steve Rubel AOL signed a deal with Intelliseek's BlogPulse, recently Trendum merged with BuzzMetrics so they are working on something to and as reported by Data Mining there is a new player: SonicHealth from Yoogli coming in the Consumer-Generated Media market and we have to pay attention what Cymfony, Umbria and maybe Google's Urchin will come up with.

If you are trying to do something with blog mining do not forget to review the information discussed in the Information Intelligence 2005 Summit and check MIT's ConceptNet Project for a knowledge base toolkit.
