From bloginfo to bloginfo


(note: pretend with nonchalance that passed only few hours from the previous post) By the way, about the Technorati’s API, some days ago I was retaking a look to an experiment I made last year (november 7) using some simple calls to the BlogInfo API, that returns infos relate to a particular blog (and other sites, too, if they have a certain number of inbound links).
