We had the Daypop 40, and Blogdex, and then PopDex came along. You thought it was over, and people would be content with all this, right?

Wrong. Welcome to BlogPulse - Automated Trend Discovery for Weblogs:

BlogPulse Key Phrases and BlogPulse Key People are mined daily from new entries in over 40,000 weblogs using machine learning algorithms and natural language processing techniques. BlogPulse Top Links are the most popular links appearing in weblogs today.

And guess what? This is a project by Intelliseek, a company with investors like Nokia, Lycos, Ford and Chrysalis. [note to self: start a blog company, that's where the money really is.]
