Just a sidenote: I wonder whether the quantity of and the naming conventions used in blogrolls reflect some conceptual disposition of the blogger. There is masturbatoric selflinking to ones own projects only, mutual crosslinking within blogclouds, or promiscuous outlinking; using the authors and not the titles of blogs (John Gruber vs. Daring Fireball, Merlin Mann vs. 43 Folders,…) might indicate an unbroken believe in an authentic and autonomous voice; using the titles might indicate a dedication to brands, and so on.

Nah, bullshit. But it’s fun to look at blogrolls trying to figure out the underlying motivation for exactly that structure – and not all possible others. (It was this blogroll that got me thinking. He uses a highly unlikely sorting technique.)
