HP's Blog Epidemic Analyzer

Blog Epidemic Analyzer:

This is a demonstration website for our recent research (here and here) on information dynamics in blogspace. You may type in a partial substring of a URL you would like to track. For example compare slow, long running memes like "giantmicrobes" (i.e. www.giantmicrobes.com) or "spambayes" (i.e. spambayes.sourceforge.net) to short punctuated ones like "cnn.com" articles.

From HP's Information Dynamics. It looks like there's an interesting list of topics to dig into. I may wish I'd never found this site.
