Blogsharing time travels

Freaky: Anil found an old post of mine laying out the blogshares idea.

If I remember correctly, the application was actually planned out, a domain was bought by someone else, and I was going to host it. We couldn’t figure out a way to automatically do the metrics though, since there wasn’t a blogdex, nor a daypop or technorati to automatically give us data. There weren’t any xml apis either, it was going to be done by scraping the single web index at the time (long since dead).
