Technorati Tracking 3 Million Blogs

Blog search engine Technorati has announced that its database has grown to encompass more than three million blogs. They count more than 275,000 blog posts every day.

The rate of growth they’re seeing is impressive too — 15,000 new blogs created per day. Even with a 45% abandonment rate, which is their estimate, that’s still pretty startling growth. As Sun’s Tim Bray notes, “Iā??ve seen this movie before, and it was ten years ago, and it was called The Web then.”

What are the implications of this? Complete redefinition of human communication and networking? I'm wondering how exactly the commercial benefits of such large scale growth are going to be sown...

I'm not sure even the folks at Technorati know the answer to that one :-)
