Context

Do you want to know where your blog ranks in the blog universe? Go to Technorati, and search for your blog's URL. Be prepared for a humbling experience.

This blog is currently ranked 163,404.

Robert Scoble's blog, Scobleizer, is ranked 29. That's right, twenty nine!

Who is Robert Scoble, you ask? He's an A-list blogger who began blogging about Microsoft, when he worked at Microsoft. He left Microsoft, and wrote a book. And to think, just a few years ago, he was sitting right where you are. That's right, he's a graduate of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications right here at SJSU. (Click here for proof.)

And he's coming back to visit. Next Tuesday, September 12, Robert Scoble will be speaking to the Journalism 163 students, and we, that is, me, and all my students, are invited to attend. It's at 6:00 in DBH 226. Better come early if you want to get a seat.

Thousands of bloggers around the world would kill for the opportunity to listen to an A-list blogger talk about blogging, for free, to a small audience. It's the blog world's equivalent of having U2 perform at your local bar. So don't miss it!

Oh psh, the only reason Jasmine wants to go is because you used the U2 analogy. Sounds interesting. I would love to go but I have work. Are we going to be graded down if we don't?
