Mental Map of the Blogging World - A Work in Progress
Topic: 4) A Random Walk
As a number of folks may know, I have been experimenting with blogging to learn more about the detailed dynamics of the space. Blogging is an active area based on a lot of factors such as open source software, social networking, emerging venture investments, searching technology innovation and liquidity events, content management, ASP models, M&A activity, browser developments, standards, CRM, email, marketing, mobile technology, etc. Blogging has an indirect effect on some of the business activities I am exploring, so I wanted to create a mental map of what is going on companywise.

Anyway, here's my work in progress and mental map on the blogging space. I know that the matrix could be built out a bit. Suggestions welcome. Hope there aren't any gross errors in there. I've included source information and indicated where I've made guesstimates.

For some reason, I keep making the mistake that Six Apart received Series B from Sequoia. Six Apart received money from August Capital. Sorry.
