Watchers Wanted

A position has opened up on the Watcher’s Council. If you have a blog, considering applying for it—the current rules are here.

Not long ago a scholar at Carnegie-Mellon produced a network analysis of the blogosphere that suggested that you could get a pretty good idea of what was going on by reading just 100 blogs. Present or emeritus Watcher’s Council members were heavily represented in that 100.

The Watcher’s Council is a great way to find new readers, make a difference, and to punch above your weight class.

    The Watcher’s Council

    Is this some weird Internet Masons group? And doesn’t Admiral Poindexter’s Office of Total Information Awareness already do this?

    More like the Illuminati than the Masons, Triumph.
