Meme Propagation In Blogspace: Add Your Blog!

This posting is a community experiment that tests how a meme,
represented by this blog posting, spreads across blogspace, physical
space and time. It will help to show how ideas travel across blogs in
space and time and how blogs are connected. It may also help to show
which blogs are most influential in the propagation of memes. The
dataset from this experiment will be public, and can be located via
Google (or Technorati) by doing a search for the GUID for this meme

The original posting for this experiment is located at: Minding the Planet

results and commentary will appear there in the future.

Please join the test by adding your blog (see instructions, below)
and inviting your friends to participate -- the more the better. The
data from this test will be public and open; others may use it to
visualize and study the connectedness of blogspace and the propagation
of memes across blogs.

The GUID for this experiment is:
(this GUID enables anyone to easily search Google (or Technorati) for
all blogs that participate in this experiment). Anyone is free to
analyze the data of this experiment. Please publicize your analysis of
the data, and/or any comments by adding comments onto the original post
(see URL above). (Note: it would be interesting to see a geographic map
or a temporal animation, as well as a social network map of the
propagation of this meme.)
