BlogPulse rocks

As much as I love the Sifry boys and their sweet Technorati site, I have to say that Intelliseek may have the most promising set of blog tracking tools with their BlogPulse. Having correctly identified that blogs are the place where trends can most clearly and quickly be spotted online, they have developed some very impressive tool. I learned, for instance, how closely mentions of the Virginia site tracked to overall mentions of HB 751 over the past month (very closely). For a PR firm, for instance, trying to seed product mentions in blogs, this is how you would get paid. But more than that, it's just cool.

Unfortunately, I also found some scary stuff... like some Tolkien-toked Catholo-fascist who refers to gay activists as "rainbow orcs." For real.
