Just reading this Wired piece about Memeorandum. They’re on the third or fourth wave of interest. I was on the second, behind MacManus and Scoble, who were on the first wave. I’m glad to see this excellent site get the credit it deserves!

An interesting line from the founder of Memeorandum, Gabe Rivera:

“If you read blogs, you know that there is this conversation and that some articles are the talk of the day, and other posts have important things to say about those,” Rivera said. “If you built graphs in your mind of what the talk looks like, I think it looks like what I’ve done. I get the sense (Memeorandum) is just a natural representation of what is already going on.”.

This is exactly what I’m talking about when I talk about modeling human behavior. It’s also exactly what I was talking about when I wrote my response yesterday to Alex Barnett: How Google Models How We Value Content.

Memeorandum models how we value content just like Google does. A more focused approach, that’s all.
