Anonymous news librarian blogger

Richard Nelsson of The Guardian's research department sends word of a blog by a UK news librarian, written anonymously: Gaolhouse Blog. The blog's been around over a year, and although I don't see any news research connections on first scan, I'll take Richard's word for it.....

BTW, I found a link at the Gaolhouse that is worth checking out: Pubsub's list of the most influential librarian blogs. Number one: Sabrina Pacifici's BeSpacific! Congrats Sabrina. At least two other newslib member blogs show up here too: Eli Edwards' Confession of a Mad Librarian, and DrWeb's Domain, both in the '40s.

Do note that the Pubsub list is extremely volatile (and measures only one dimension of influence). beSpacific has been quite high in the rankings for a while, not surprisingly.

Walt is right. The list is volatile but only seems to measure one thing (inlinks). There is more to it than inlinks, but we don't (and won't) provide our algorithm (Does Google release their rankings? - Nope).

Coming soon:

1) A 30 day average ranking do deal with the volatility factor.

2) An FAQ.
