At some point the blogosphere is going to find that it's spends
so much time working on Google rankings, it's going to start to
take control of the construction of relationships for itself.
The recognition of the "A-List" preceeds the creation of a market.
There are going to be new protocols for the construction of
edges in the network, that are richer than tags and URIs, and
the meaning of the edges will not be entrusted to a ranking
Rather, it will be negotiated by the nodes, the individuals, who
will agree on a meaning of the link.
I'd like to enhance exsiting blogging software so it can act as
a node in a graph data structure, that can be accessed
programatically, and see what new applications can be created.
