: Take a look at this neat new Blogrunner site tracking every story and writer in The Times.

A year ago at E-Tech, Jay Rosen told Technorati’s Dave Sifry that he could guarantee getting blogs attention and respect by creating a cosmos page for every writer on every paper. Ego would drive them to see what people were saying about them and their stories.

The Blogrunner site — sent to us by Steve Rubel — tries to do that. It’s a bit ungainly but still cool.

I just got email from Robert Scoble saying he still has a soft spot for Memeorandum because it tracks blog comment on multiple media outlets.

They’re all headed in the right direction, but none has arrived yet.
