More Thoughts On The Link Cosmos

I was thinking about who might make use of the Link Cosmos code from yesterday (aside from the highly intelligent folks already using it). It occurs to me that sites with massive traffic and no comments or trackbacks would be doing their readers a real service by showing Link Cosmos for their posts.

One of the comments on the original post was that having a Link Cosmos link might just be to depressing for most bloggers (i.e. finding that no one had linked a story). While that may be the case, the opposite is true as well. Wouldn't it be handy to see everyone who linked to a InstaPundit, Volokh Conspiracy, CalPundit, DailyKos etc. post? I think it would. Here's an example of how it would work.

InstaPundit post: NOT MUCH BIG-MEDIA ATTENTION FOR THE IRANIAN PROTESTS
Link Cosmos for the post: Click here

Now isn't that a cool way to find blogs that address the post in question? I think it is. The best part is that it is no extra work for the blogger. It's just a service to their readers provided by Technorati, that they have thoughtfully expedited.

Readers: Ask for your Link Cosmos!

I briefly enabled the code ... (Below threshold)

I briefly enabled the code from your e-mail but decided it wasn't that useful for me since the vast majority of the posts get no linkage and you have to click the link to see. Plus, Technorati is rather balky and can be very slow to notice that a post has been linked. I was hoping you'd invent a shortcut around the plug-in that displays the results on the page, which I can't make work.
