  The database of blogs...

blo.gs is for sale (via Luis)

this includes:
  • the blo.gs domain name (and all subdomains)
  • the weblo.gs domain name
  • the database of blogs (and related databases)
  • all rights to the blo.gs software*

Having that database of blogs can make life of many weblog researchers much easier... Would be nice if Technorati or Bloglines or PubSub or any other weblog-indexing site could help... Not necessary with a copy of database, but at least a set of APIs that could do something like:

  • given a URL indicate if it's a weblog or not (which is not easy)
  • given a weblog URL provide it's metadata (title, author name, language, and lots of other interesting things that may be known within the system, e.g. number of incoming links)
  • generate random weblog URL

Of course, all these depends on definition of weblog one uses and lots of other things, but still...
