Two Videos: 2009 State of Blogosphere Keynote & Interview

Here's a couple of videos of me from last week's BlogWorld: the first is from Techcrunch's coverage of my 2009 State of the Blogosphere keynote (includes full speech including Q&A), and the second is the post keynote interview with WebProNews. Enjoy!

HUGE Week: Top 5 Social Media & 38th Largest Internet Property, New Technorati.com, State of the Blogosphere

What an incredible week for Technorati!

First, comScore released its September site audience rankings, and we got two awesome bits of news: Technorati Media climbed to the 5th largest conversational media property (behind only Facebook, MySpace, Blogger and Wordpress, and we also have become the 38th largest US internet property!! This is amazing news for us, and validation of a lot of hard work between our publisher partners and our team. For marketers, this only reinforces our offer to them: enabling brands to engage with social media at scale.

Second, we launched a wholly new Technorati.com on Wednesday. We received some great feedback from around the web including positive write-ups from Techcrunch and CNET. A few weeks back, I guest authored a post on VentureBeat about the thought behind the site's design, as well as some background on Technorati's overall strategy.

Third, on Friday, I had the honor of giving the keynote on the 2009 State of the Blogosphere at BlogWorld Expo. I was very encouraged by the positive reception to the speech and its message: the state of the blogosphere is STRONG, largely due to the rise of a professional class of bloggers that are becoming truly mainstream. The full 5-day report starts on Technorati.com 10-19-09, and includes 20 profiles and interviews with some of the most prominent professional bloggers today - names like Arianna Huffington, Michael Arrington, and Seth Godin among many others.

Indeed, a great week for us with much more to come...

Technorati's Big Week Just Got Bigger - Now 5th Largest Social Media Property

Well, I just posted this morning that Technorati Media had a big week ahead of it, and that week just got bigger. comScore just released their September audience measurement, and we've climbed to the 5th largest social media property, passing Twitter. We remain the largest ad network focused on social media!!

Big Week At Technorati

The next seven days are busy ones at Technorati. Rumor has it that there's a wholly new site with a new Authority Rank being launched; I'm giving a keynote at BlogWorld Expo this Friday morning on the 2009 State of the Blogosphere; and the actual 5-day report of 2009 State of the Blogosphere begins being published next Monday.

This week represents months of hard work by our team, and in fact, is a significant milestone for my last two years at Technorati. We get to sleep in November (ok, not really, that will almost happen over the holidays in December...).
