Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Are you getting sick of ecosystem news yet?

The other day I moved the main ecosystem index over to my fast server, as it was screwing up my DSL line with all the traffic. Today I moved the rest of the information over, and started a new section: applications, to go with the incomplete list of backlinks and some rude comments about other people's work.

This is where all the other bits of information that come out in the wash after the ecosystem itself has been computed go. We start with degrees of separation, suggested by Stephen Dulaney. It gives you a number (currently around 4) that indicates the average 'distance' between pairs of blogs. 4 means you can expect to be able to get from most blogs to most others by clicking on four or less links.
