— We describe blogTrust, an innovative modular and extensible prototype application for monitoring changes in the interests of blogosphere participants.

The proposed process classifies weblog posts in predefined categories, generates a feature vector for each weblog from the post classification results, clusters together blogs with similar topics/interests, and, via visualization techniques, enables the detection of interest convergence or divergence among bloggers over different time periods. BlogTrust uses established, robust data mining techniques to support every step of the process. The motivation for the work is a hypothesized strong connection between important (global or "local") events and the rapid reduction in the divergence of (global o...
