With a wide circulation of 180 million weblogs worldwide, weblogs with good reason are one of the killer applications of the worldwide web. It was already shown on several occasions that it can be highly meaningful for individuals, institutions or even governments to find ways and measures to extract information out of the blogosphere.
However, it is increasingly difficult - if not impossible - for the average internet user and weblog enthusiast to grasp the blogosphere’s complexity as a whole, due to thousands of new weblogs and an almost uncountable number of new posts adding up to the before-mentioned collective on a daily basis.
Therefore, mining, analyzing, modeling and presenting this immense data collection is of central interest. This could enable the user to detect technical trends, political atmospheric pictures or news articles about a specific topic.More information about BlogIntelligence
