Techmeme have announced their Top 100 Leaderboard page in the last 12 hours. It’s being called a something that attack’s Technorati’s Top 100 list by some (of course they are listed #1 on the list – so they would) – however I think that while it’s a great list and concept that it’s far from killing anything. As Gabe says in his launch post – it just tracks Tech sites that are part of the Techmeme system. They tend to track tech blogs with more of a business focus – so really it’s just tracking a small part of the TechSphere. It also isn’t really just a list of blog either – with a variety of types of sites included.
I think that Marshall Kirkpatrick’s analysis of the list is one of the best going around – Techmeme Launching Leaderboard – World Likely to Keep Turning. It’s a great tool – but if this is a Technorati killer then Techrnorati really must be in a sorry state.
