Surfing the Feedster 500

Scott Johnson announced the new list of Feedster’s Top 500 blogs this week (and blogged about it here). I’m admiring the lovely–and clever–tag cloud of terms down the side of the (very long) list, but I’m even more interested in the unexpected blogs in the top 100–there are a whole lot of blogs I’ve never read, nor heard of–which makes me hope this is one way out of the big boys bubble chamber.
Some of the surprises (to me)
#18: Spacefem.com Feminist Of The Day
#19:
flagrantdisregard
# 35:
knittyBlog
#45: National Center for Science Education

Feedster’s kindly provided an exportable file for Excel analysis–I’d love to see Tristan Louis analyze the breakdown of the Top 500 by software provided, network affiliation, etc.
