"Weblogs" are a method of distributing personal news, essentially an individual's log of activities, news, and thoughts presented in a public manner on the Web. As a publishing medium, Weblogs are ultimately democratic, often as timely as traditional news sources, and have a potential distribution much greater than print media. One problem with these personal information sources is the inability to find an audience. Blogdex is a system built to harness the power of personal news, amalgamating and organizing personal news content into one navigable source, moving this democratic media to a wider audience.
