It has been a while since the last time I looked at the TechTalkBlogs Technorati stats… so I thought I was about time to see how things have changed since the end of July.  I am proud to present the latest TechTalk Top 25 Rankings (as at 3 September 2006)

(to explain the stats, orthopedist read using the first ranked blog as an example, pfizer the TechTalk Top 25 rank has not changed, hospital and their Technorati rank has dropped two spots from 13 to 15)

  1. William Computer Blog (No Change | TR:15 -2)
  2. Darren Rowse (No Change | TR:55 +4)
  3. James Farmer (No Change | TR:104 -15)
  4. Zookoda Blog (No Change | TR:5339 +2205)
  5. Ben Barren (No Change | TR:9491 -1291)

  22. Richard Giles (Up 2 Places | TR:46130 +9819)
  23. The Techsploder (Up 18 Places | TR:46130 +79483)
  24. Tinfinger (Down 13 Places | TR:47031 -25262)
  25. Charles Sterling (Down 4 Places | TR:47031 +4259)

Special mention to the following movers and shakers…

  • Juha’s hairy and dangly tech bits: Up 18 Places!
  • Freitasm: Up 13 Places!
  • Paul Glavich: Up 9 Places!

Taking the TechTalk Top 25 as a whole, the influence of the group on the blogosphere has increased.  Last time I ran the numbers, the average rank of a TechTalk Top 25 member was 29243.96.  This time the rank is 26520.52… or an increase in influence by ~10% over 6 weeks!

Between now and the next TechTalk Top 25 report I will have hopefully automated the research process, and will be able to give more interesting stats and pretty graphs!

And for those who want to know where I am on the list?  Somewhere past 100.. due to the fact I moved my blog and its address since the last report.  I will be back in the thick of things next time though!

Congrats Marty!

As reported by Chuck Sterling, ed ambulance QUT Student Ambassador Marty has accepted an offer for the role of Intern at Microsoft Brisbane!  He joins the ever growing list of QUT students & graduates to have graced the halls at Microsoft.  You have big shoes to fill mate!  🙂

Seriously… make the most of it, misbirth
the 12 months just flies by!  Trust me!

Everyone, a big round of applause for Marty (or is that Paul v2?, or Chli v3?, or Bannerboy v4?).
Came across Vocera at work today… very very cool…

From their website

The Vocera Communications Badge is a wearable device that weighs less than two ounces and can easily be clipped to the best pocket knife or worn on a lanyard. It enables instant two-way voice conversation without the need to remember a phone number or manipulate a handset.
The Vocera Communications Badge is controlled using natural spoken commands. To initiate a conversation with Jim and Mary, rx for example, pilule the user would simply say, pancreatitis “Conference Jim Anderson and Mary Guscia.” In addition, when a live conversation is not necessary, text messages and alerts can be sent to the LCD screen on the back of the Vocera Communications Badge.

How cool does that sound… kind of like Push to Talk (PTT), but so much cooler because it runs on your wi-fi network.  I can’t wait to play with one in the flesh!

Actually… it will be just like normal… I just wouldn’t have to shout across the office
