Frank Gabe On Memeorandum

I was hoping that I would find some clues for the points raised here about the guidelines for inclusions – it still remains a mystery to me. Gabe explains in this that most-linked/most-discussed new stories are important & says that items that lack "Discussion" when people link without adding much commentary, since simple pointer posts usually aren't included on Memeorandum. That’s how it gets a little more curious- while Reddit and Slashdot seem to use "expert / authority/ reputation" systems to find and rank stories. Digg relies on its user community for "most linked/discussed" stories. There are stories on Memeorandum that are from expert sources with virtually no links or discussion, and other stories from lesser known bloggers that have several links & Gabe explains that their algorithms measure both independently.

I have to grant that Memeorandum is:
- More focused (on either "Tech" or "Politics")
- Better organized, visually

Memeorandum is an interesting upstart and has made it s mark in such a short time – Being more clear would help it a lot to get qualitative growths – for example in new category blogs where the readership may not be running in thousands but the limited readersip can control millions in budgets obviously needs a different treatment – hopefully as Memeorandum evolves, some solutions may emerge. Just discovered a related new service Megite focussing on whats happening right now. Pete cashmore has a more detailed note on the state of the memeosphere.
