EgosurfingThis was sent to me by David Totzke James Bogosian. It's really just a page ranking system that we've seen over the last 5 to 8 years. There are many search engine ranking tools that tell you what results page you end up on.

However, I haven't seen one that actually calculates (via some Blogshares-style numeric voodoo) your "ego."

The AJAX-y implementation and the speedometer are actually pretty slick, and I spent some time taking it apart.

Here's mine. I notice that Dave Winer and Martin Fowler are in there also. Either way, this doesn't bode well for me. Looks like I need to check my fat ego! Here's a few other fun ones: Chris Pirillo, Greg Hughes, Chris Sells, and Rory. Enjoy!

P.S. Just in case you have any idea that this isn't complete nonsense, notice that I'm only one line down from "blackmarketkittens.com."
