What a great post: molly.com » Tag You’re It: Talking to Technorati
I am an unabashed supporter of Techorati, and Molly's closing statement sums up why: "Despite the problems building, improving and scaling a specialty search engine, Technorati is a company built on passion for the Web, for blogs, for individuals and for society at large." It's really that simple. I have faith in what they're doing now, what they are building toward, their understanding of the needs they're trying to address, and quite frankly the people behind the company—not that I know any of them personally.
Technorati certainly has its detractors
, and really everyone who dislikes them has very well-reasoned statements as to why they do. Put those statements up against my "I like 'em because I believe in 'em and tags are cool" statements and the detractors sure look far more intelligent. I really just haven't had time for a thought-provoking, compare-and-contrast post as to why I like them and not, for example, Feedster or IceRocket. I don't know when that will happen.
But in the meantime, I'll be using Techorati and tagging posts as appropriate and pinging them and using them as my primary search engine for "live" things. I wish I could do more to bring Technorati to the masses than four pages in my Blogger book.technorati tag: technorati
