Take the pulse of the blogosphere

I’ve written before about Googlism, a fun tool that searches Google to arrive at a characterization of a person, place or thing. Now there is something similar for the blogosphere, Opinmind. Type a name or topic in its search box, and it returns two side-by-side lists of pro and con comments from the blogosphere, along with a “sentimenter” measuring the blogosphere’s overall opinion of the person or topic. You can take the sentimeter results of a given search and paste them in any web page, as I’ve done below for a search of “dick cheney.”
