"On the Bursty Evolution of Blogspace"
May 20, 2003
A relatively early attempt to come up with algorithms for tracking and measuring the blogosphere, focused mainly on coming up with the process. From the conclusion: "Around the end of 2001, Blogspace began a dramatic increase in connectedness, and in local-scale community structure. Within those local communities, it also began to exhibit dramatic increases in the occurrence of bursty link creation behavior."
