Technorati 100


I made the Technorati 100 today. Thanks, everyone, for your linking, comments, and evangelism! I only need 5,000 more sites to link to be in the top ten! (This is a picture of David Sifry, Technorati’s CEO, giving me a tshirt to commemorate breaking into the top 100.)

    Congrats! Of course I’m sure that it’s all my doing. I added you to my Technorati favorites yesterday.

    Hey Guy,
    I linked your site, good luck on your technorati ratings. I was pleased to see you mentioned in “All Marketers are Liars” which I read while I was in Rome. Thanks again for taking the time to talk to me.

    Good luck Guy. I really enjoy your blog. I think you’re contributing a lot to the art.

    An excellent blog. But… “totum ecce sine strepito signum” is more (a) elegant and (b) what you mean.
    (“Omnino” doesn’t mean much at all, to tell you the truth.)

    Wow, that’s a mouthful. Maybe I should just do “All signal, no noise.”

    Congrats, Guy. You deserve the recognition.

    Hello Guy :o)
    I hate to tell bad news, but do you know Signal vs. Noise ? “a weblog by 37signals about entrepreneurship, design, experience, simplicity, constraints, pop culture, our products, products we like, and more. Established 1999 in Chicago.”

  12. Smittie March 23, 2006 at 4:25 pm - Reply

    I have to wonder if, in the original context of the phrase, it is even possible to have pure signal with no noise.
    Congratulations, Guy. Seems like you might also be up for an award for fastest to achieve A-List status.

    I’m sorry, but as the poster above said, this is nowhere near latin. Instead of fake erudition, look for something more fitting. What about a hockey metaphor?

    I love reading your books and blog: I always feel at least a little bit smarter when I’m done than when I started.
    You’re a great role-model, Guy. Someday, I hope to be even more successful than you are and you’re not making that any easier.
    Keep up the awesome work, and thanks for sharing it with all of us.

    You were an inspiration 2 years ago at the Social entrepreneurship Conference in San Francisco. So much so that my decision to come to the N-TEN this year in Seattle was based on you being the speaker. Your books provide a great roadmap, and your words ring true. Keep working and keep writing. I’ll be preaching your words for some time to come.

    Not surprising. Its an excellent site. You have important stuff to say and the skill to put it across well. I particularly like your “10 points” approach and have used it myself several times. Good luck on getting to Top 10. Watch your rear-view mirror, though – I’m right behind you (well actually a couple of hundred thousand behind you but watch this space!)

    I think on your tombstone (hopefully no time soon), you should have inscribed “Here lies Guy Kawasaki. He didn’t &^%$ around.” Your blog is overwhelmingly good. Time will be the true test of course, but you are hands down a master of this medium. 0 to T100 in 3 months? No freakin way!

    Guy – yes, the earlier Latin *is* a mouthful. You could always try “vera veritas” or “veritas veritatis” – the latter is more what you’re up to, distilling long experience into small potent units.

    Congratulations Guy! That’s an amazing feat you’ve pulled off, wish I could do the same!!!
    I picked up on your blog via Yaro’s website, and immediately added to my Bloglines! Keep up the good work!

    You uberblogger you! Good on ya :-). I have to say it’s one of the first things I read before doing anything else in the morning because the insights have never failed to help me to do better – whether it’s the job, my start-up or just life in general. As it was pointed out below, you rock GK!

    Congrats Guy! I hope to meet you at eBay Live in Las Vegas. Perhaps you can discuss methods for evangelizing a small startup eBay Trading Assistant company like mine.

    Congratulations Guy! You are the best! (after me, of course)…Now, you will need only 4,999 more site links to be in the top ten! From Argentina, Eduardo.

    Congratulations Guy! I’ve enjoyed following your blog daily and appreciate the content you pump out as well as your consistently positive message. As a side note, I was one of the lucky few to be sitting in the audience of your PALY speech (as a graduating senior) and have been doing my best to heed your advice ever since.

    Congrats Guy! I have been enjoying your blog for quite sometime now but had not linked it. Did it just now, hope you make it to the top ten.

    I just picked up a copy of your book. I’m looking forward to reading it and putting up a review on my site.

    Congrats Guy,
    glad my prediction of feb 23rd, (you being in technorati’s top 100 within a month or two) came true
    on Feb 23rd you had 3,082 links from 1,567 sites to your blog in Technorati.
    One month and a week later you’ve doubled the links in technorati and nearly doubled the sites 6,094 links from 2,809 sites
    So in about 4-6 months, I’ll see you in the top 10

    Meeting Guy Kawasaki

    I got to meet Guy Kawasaki and give him a signed Technorati t-shirt, as he had just made it to the Technorati Top 100. I’ve always admired Guy – I remember reading “The Macintosh Way” back when I was in high school, and it changed my life. So, it was …
