This is sort of old news, but I wanted to briefly say thanks to the folks at CNet who put me on their Blog 100 list. It's an interesting collection of bloggers they've put together. Unlike so many other "top 100" or "top 500" lists produced by the blog search engines, CNet takes the right approach: topical groupings.

This came up last week when I talked with Tony Conrad during his Sphere demo. I asked him if they produced a top 100 listing. He explained that it doesn't make sense to do that. First of all, many popular blogs cover multiple topics and don't fit neatly into a single category. But more importantly, those "overall" top 100 lists don't help most folks to discover interesting new blogs.

Well, I have to admit that I agree with Sphere. Those top 100 rankings are not all that helpful but they are fun and very cool! Plus, I am sure that it must feel pretty good! Congrats on making the cut! I have had you in my feed reader for a long time. Mike

I'm suprised you're talking about this now. Your blog has been linked from for a long ass time.

just wanted to say congrats, the honor is well deserved. i can't imagine it's easy to blog honestly at a big firm - even one that appears to get it such as Yahoo - but you manage it well. kudos.
