June 9, 2006 3:23 PM - New blogs, new home page
This project almost kicked my ass today, but I successfully launched a redesigned and re-conceived ScienceBlogs home page today. The paint is still wet, so don't bang too hard, but there is some really cool functionality in there. Aside from having added about 20 new bloggers, we have scripts reading every word published and attempting to determine the topics that are being discussed. (See the "Wordburst" module, and "latest related entries" above it.) It's hitting more than it misses, so far, but there's a lot of tweaking to do. The intent was to create a ScienceBlogs zeitgeist, a page where you can get a snapshot of what's being discussed, in as close to real-time as Movable Type allows :) We're not 100% there yet, but what we've got is pretty cool.
