I couldn't resist. I'm a big fan of Technorati, so when I read about the new APIs (using REST no less!), I had to hack up a new module for the right side of my blog's main index.

If you look, you'll see a "blog cosmos" section there. It's updated once per hour using my technorati_recent.pl script. You may notice similarities to my opml2html.pl script. I used it as the basis for this one.

Anyway, it's there for the taking. It's a quick but useful hack (for me, at least). Knock yourself out. Send patches if you do something cool--like error handling? :-)

Or not.

Update: Or I could have waited a few hours and used one the new MT plug-in. Man, that was FAST.
