I'd like to thank the Academy

Says here I'm an interesting newcomer, which is rather amusing as I've been doing this blog thing since last January 1. But hey, it beats being an annoying newcomer. Don't know how long I'll be visible on this link, so check it out now while you still can.

UPDATE: Gone already. Damn, that was fleeting.

Charles, what that link actually measures is things which have gotten linked a lot lately. The idea is that the rankings at Technorati, Blogdex, and the rest skew heavily towards the Kottkes and Instapundits and Boing Boing and the other established heavy hitters, so people are trying to come up with a means of providing information that filters out the old standards. You could have been doing Off the Kuff since Mark Andersen was working on Mosaic, and it would still call you a "newcomer".
