Meta Linker
In which we learn the value of putting dates on web pages...

This project was created in 2000, when the web was young. It is now a historical artifact and not for general consumption.
Introducing the simplest way to keep track of the weblog community's debates and discussions...

The future of the internet may be reciprocal linking, the semantic web, a whole self-organising mesh of information that encompasses everything. But let's be honest - it's not going to happen tomorrow...

So we at ThinkBlank have come up with the next best thing - a simple piece of Javascript that you can add to your site that uses Blogdex to help bridge the gap between webloggers.

You might be writing about the latest Apple gadget or you might be writing about tensions in the Middle East - and if it's topical you're probably not going to be the only one. But how do you (and how can you help your readers) find out about the other discussions going on around the net?

Metalinker takes a very simple approach - every time you put a link into your website, metalinker uses javascript to add a link to the page on blogdex that lists other people talking who have mentioned that link. And so with just a couple of mouse-clicks people reading your site can read a webful of opinion and debate...
