The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

A "Green" blog, on Technorati.

Today, I checked Technorati, to see what its assessment of my blog was. I was both surprised and pleased at what I found.

Apparently, my blog is thought of as a Green blog, in the sense of environmentally concerned. I have a Green Authority of 88, as of today and I am placed at 2,544 on the list of all blogs in the world with a Green theme. That, to me, seems quite a good placing, considering that I only write about Green themes, occasionally and not each and every day, as some Green blogs do.

As an overall assessment, my blog today has a Technorati Authority of 92 and a placement at 27,851 out of all the world's blogs. Again, that is surprisingly good considering how many blogs there are in the world. (Note: according to Wikipedia, there were 156 million public blogs, by February 16th 2011). My blog is accounted, by Technorati, to be in the top 0.0178 %. That is it is 1 in 5,601.

Technorati comes to these assessments by monitoring the linking activity of the whole of the internet in response to a blog. So, my "Green Authority", for instance, comes from the response of the Green community in the blogosphere, and the internet in general, to my blog postings. So, too, for my Technorati Authority: it measures how the internet is responding to my blog posts.

In a way, it is helpful to learn this, from Technorati, since it tells me what I am doing well and how I am affecting the wider world. Without such a monitoring tool, it would be very difficult to know one's impact on the wider world. The only clues I have, other than that, are comments on my blog and my traffic data.

Thank you to all my readers and, in particular those who are linking to my posts. It is heartening to come to understand that my words are having an effect, somehow, somewhere, or at least, some influence.
