CGM Marketing Launch »

Last night was the launch party of CGM Marketing. It is a joint venture between Digital Garage, Asatsu DK, Dentsu and Cyber Communications (CCI). (Press release) I co-founded Digital Garage in 1994. My little web/IT company called Eccosys made a joint venture with and later merged with the Garage group headed by Kaoru Hayashi. The Garage group was involved in advertising, marketing and content. We were their little Internet engine that could. In the early days of Eccosys, I had been talking to Yahoo about doing Yahoo Japan. After Softbank invested, it was clear that I wasn't going to get...

Dave has posted Part 1 of another round of his now regular State of the Blogosphere reports. Part 1 is about Blogosphere Growth. Here is the Summary: * Technorati now tracks over 27.2 Million blogs * The blogosphere is doubling in size every 5 and a half months * It is now over 60 times bigger than it was 3 years ago * On average, a new weblog is created every second of every day * 13.7 million bloggers are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created * Spings (Spam Pings) can sometimes account for as much as...

Falling below the fold »

My Technorati ranking has become #104 and I've officially fallen off the Technorati top 100. Powerlaw, schmowerlaw. If you don't blog often or maintain a stream of interesting content your ranking will quickly drop. Even at a lower level of output, my ranking has gone from my previous 40's and 50's to below 100. Obviously blogs that continue to be interesting like Boing Boing keep the #1 position, but the amount of churn at the lower levels is encouraging. Although I didn't conduct this experiment on purpose, it's interesting data. On the other hand, it would be interesting to see...

20 million served »

Kevin Marks20 million served Technorati passed 20 million blogs today. The 20 millionth was Les CE2/CM2 Anquetil, a blog from an elementary school in Reims, France, in the heart of Champagne country. They started the blog to celebrate running 2 miles in a Relay Marathon.That's a lot of blogs. I wouldn't say "20 million can't be wrong" (because history tells us otherwise) but blogging is clearly more of a trend now than a "fad"....

Off to Japan »

Had a wonderful time yesterday at Les Blogs in Paris and enjoyed meeting all of the new people as well as old friends.

Take a look at the lesblogs tags on Technorati and Flickr for pictures and posts from the conference. I'm off to Tokyo today for some meetings and eventually a few days off next week....

Technorati and Digital Garage just announced that they will work together to set up Technorati Japan which will be established as a subsidiary of Digital Garage and will distribute Technorati services in Japan.
