Sifry has just added a new API call to Technorati called getinfo. It lets you get information that a blogger has made available about themselves on their blog like a link to their FOAF file, LOAF file or their GeoURL. The great thing about this is if you've claimed your blog, this is a verifiable way to link your Technorati ID with your blog. LOTS of amazing things this could enable... (There will be a quiz at the end.)

So... who's going to program jibot to retrieve people's Technorati info?

Here is how to get my getinfo http://api.technorati.com/getinfo?username=joichi

Cool. Unfortunately for me, due to some problems with Technorati, I have never been able to 'claim' my blog successfully.

Let me recover from Blogalia/Bloxus crash, and I'll update techonorati.py and jibot :)
