A very nice new resource from David Sifry, is the Technorati: Current Events, with context. Its basically an analasys of what blogs are linking to. 150.000 blogs are monitored every hour for links to established news sites, thereby making it possible to pick up on what current events make the buzz on the blogs. Very nice resource.
No money for the bet of what major topics the blogs are refering to these days,
