I just had a few thoughts about some weblog things. As SXSW draws near, I'm going to be trying to recognize a lot of new faces, or I'll stare at everyone's badge until I can put a name with a face. My prediction is that everyone going will be putting up images of themselves on their pages so people can find them in Austin (well, at least that's my hope).
Another thought: with the beebo ratings and various weblog monitors, why hasn't anyone done the ultimate in popularity contests and make a Weblogger Stock Exchange? I'd love to buy 100 shares of STRN, EVHD, or KTKE and watch as they shoot up 3 points on re-design day, or go down a point and a half when they don't update.
