Internet Happenings, Events and Sources
Tuesday, July 15, 2003 The NITLE Blog Census is an attempt to create and share a regularly updated database of all known weblogs. The site describes itself as:
"Our crawlers search the Web for weblogs, and attempt to categorize them by language and authoring tool. Data gathered during the census is archived every two weeks, and is available for non-commercial use. Our software respects the usual robots.txt exclusion rules."
As of this posting the site identified and indexed 628,741 weblogs on the Internet. It identified this blog as part of its database of weblogs. Interesting site with potential to identify and show very relevant information on the growth trends of blogs on the Internet. NITLE is the National Institute for Technology and Liberal Education, a non-profit national consortium supported by the Andrew W. Mellon foundation, and dedicated to helping liberal arts colleges make effective use of technology.
