Joi Ito’s Technobot



Joi Ito:

I wrote a script that gets your technorati cosmos and creates a sidebar file of inbound blogs like the one on my blog and sends you email and jabber chats when there are new inbound links. It’s written in python. It’s ugly and totally amateur, but Dave Sifry said that making it available now was more “in the spirit of things” than trying to clean it up before I made it available. It’s a bit embarrasing, but like with my Emergent Democracy Paper, I hope the releasing it early and getting feedback will be a good learning experience. Anyway, feedback is greatly appreciated and I hope to continue working on it. It is available on the TechnoBot Wiki Page. Please feel free to add feature requests or make comments about the way I am doing this.

Very cool, thanks for getting it out there.
