The biases of links (danah boyd)

danah boyd writes a very insightful piece on differences in link patterns between men & women, the Technorati Top 100 and lesser blogs, blog communities (LiveJournal etc.) and blogs outside of communities (like this one). I thought it was particularly interesting how many of the Top 100 have dropped their blogrolls because they don’t want the social pressure of keeping them current. That’s a path we may have to adapt here as well.
