State of the Blogosphere

This month (Feb. 2006), there are several surveys released on the current status of blogsphere. Here are some numbers to throw out at you -
1) the Gallup Poll organization has released a new survey showing 20% of Americans read blogs. Since blogs barely existed until recently, the figure was less than instant messaging (28%), auctions (23%), videocasts and downloading music (22%). Interestingly, 24% of men read blogs where as only 17% of women read them.
2) according to Technorati's 'State of the Blogosphere report', although a new weblog is created every 1 second of every day, 9% of new blogs are spam or machine generated, and 13.7 million bloggers are still posting 3 months after their blogs are created.

Wow, that's some interesting figure. Have you read Ray Kurzweil opinion on the "living web" particularly his future predictions about blogs and other social networks? I'd recommend his book, I think it's called The Singularity or something like that.
