Good Analysis Deserves Recognition

It's time to give some link love to some of the folks who have given it to Technorati. I've added various interviews I've done about Technorati, blogs, social media and entrepreneurship in the right column. Check 'em out, let me know what you think, and engage with the host publishers. I'd also like to call out several other articles in this post that I think are quite interesting and objective analyses of Technorati and what we do.

Here's a great explanation of how to get the most out of from Chris Snyder at Mashable

Dean Takahashi at VentureBeat wrote a really good piece summarizing some of the highlights our 2008 State Of The Blogosphere

iMedia interviewed me about the various way that marketers and brands can use blogs as an effective media channel

Lastly, PBS' MediaShift wrote a very objective article about some of the challenges Technorati faces with blog search in general, as well as competing with Google Blog Search. The article also points out the complexity of what we've built and some of the opportunities our IP gives us.

Just Getting Started / /Work In Progress

So let's get this out there right away: this is a work in progress. I do plan to do more, to write more.

That will change over time, but now, call this 'The Jalichandra Directory.'

The irony of running a blog company is that I don't have time to blog. I read blogs VORACIOUSLY -- 25-30 posts/blogs per day. Yet I don't have time to actually write much myself (aside from replying to 100 emails per day...but that's not blogging). But I promise this will change. For anyone following me on Facebook or Twitter, you know I have much to say, much to write (even without Sarah Palin sticking her foot in her mouth regularly; for a sample of my tweets, check out the right column or

So stay tuned. Some good stuff will appear here. But for now, accept this blog for what it is: a directory of jalichandra crap, with the promise of the semi-interesting things that run through this Jalichandra's head.

This is a test. This is only a test. This is a test of the emergency blogging system. In the event of an emergency, you really should not be reading this.
