all information is relative?

September 6, 2010

The website PeerIndex.net have talked about their ‘relative measure of an individual’s online authority’ as the Semantic Web Blog puts it for them.  PeeerIndex are similar to Klout.com and others looking to establish an online influence measurement score online.  The idea of ‘relative’ is interesting, it is what we use on mepath.com and the lifestylelinking – open source project.   As far as I can understand the relative authority index combines three parts, authority, audience and activity.  I class this data as log data, that is data produce in serving up and interacting with a webpage.  It is valuable data as googles pagerank demonstrates for every search query.  What I have found out over the years of exploring data from such sources, it is the second best proxy for the real context or meaning authored in the text.  That is why, mepath and the lifestylelinking project use relativity based on the context of each blog post authored.  Put another way it uses nil log data in its calculation of relative.
