They don't call me Professor Katz for nothing
Thanks to our Maximum Leader, I've learned that Catymology has been noticed by several enterprising students at Carnegie Mellon University. In their study, this blog ranked 77th among the most informative blogs---one step above Hugh Hewitt!
Bloggers Blog: Carnegie Mellon Study Ranks Most Informative Blogs: A recent Carnegie Mellon study used higher mathematics to answer the question: if you want to be informed about what the entire blogospohere is talking about, but you can only read 100 blogs (out of the millions available), which blogs should you read? We were very happy to learn that BloggersBlog.com came in 8th on the list. Other blogs that ranked high on the list include Instapundit, Michelle Malkin, Boing Boing, BlogHer, Gothamist and Micropersuasion. You can see the website for the study here and a PDF file for the report can be found here. The paper was awarded the best student paper award at the ACM SIGKDD International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining. (via Data Mining) Here is a list of the 100 top ranked blogs.
Our friends at The Modulator, hosts of the Friday Ark, were ranked 7th, and Conservative Cat ranked 46th.
I'm so overwhelmed that I need to take a nap.
