1. Yahoo! Buzz Index -- This is actually pretty cool. There’s “The Buzz Log: What the world is searching for...” Current topics include The Perfect Prom Hair and We All Want to Be Gym Class Heroes. The Buzz Index also includes a raking of the top searches of the day, both overall leaders (Britney Spears, Antonella Barba, and Anna Nicole Smith) and movers--searches that have climbed the rankings the most by various categories. The number one mover as I write this post is “Hang Seng” which is some bank in
2. BuzzMachines -- I’m not sure what this site is all about, but according to their own definition, buzz is “the first ever "easy to use" free modular software based synthesizer.” I still don’t know what that means, but since the first pages talks about algorithms, autopanners, and crunchy frogs, I don’t think I want to know.
3. BuzzFlash -- This sites supposedly “provides headlines, news, and commentary for a geographically-diverse, politically-savvy, pro-democracy, anti-hypocrisy web community, reaching five million* people a month and growing.” Tops on their site for the day are links to a YouTube commercial of a scary gun dealer guy, an article about Jenna Bush’s upcoming book, and the senate majority leader’s reaction to a guilty verdict for Scooter Libby. Not really the kind of news I need.
4. TheBuzz 94.5 --
5. Blogger Buzz -- All the latest news about our favorite blogging platform. If you're a major blog geek, I bet this stuff is thrilling. Otherwise.... hmmm.
(I’m not sure where BuzzBlog ranks, but I stopped scanning after #500 out of about 60,700,000 hit returns. We definitely have better Buzz than any of these sites.
