Over at the ODP, we’re sometimes accused by our critics of letting our directory go ‘stale’ for a number of reasons. I won’t dwell on those (I’ve written enough lengthy posts today) but one argument against it is that we are often pretty quick at getting categories up to reflect world trends. We had a September 11th category, with a whole pile of links and news stories, up on September 12th, for example. And we’ve had a Flash mobs category since mid-August – there’s now even a German-langauge version of it too. I don’t believe that we have a Flash-blogging category but then it seems to have come and gone, unless I’m mistaken.
