#9 (Week 4) Locate library related blogs and/or news feeds

I found Technorati to be the most user friendly of the suggested search tools. I liked the fact that they had separated Posts, Blogs, Videos and Photos. It seems easy to use, clean to read and complete in its search. Topix had an interesting feature with the timeline or what they call an “Interactive graph of “______” in the news”. Feedster seems to be down right now, so I was unable to view this site. From a search in Google it seems that this is a BETA version and is down “Version 2.1 BETA. Feedster is Changing... We'll be back up soon with exciting news!” Overall this was an interesting activity, but not something I got a great deal out of.
