feedscott 438 brrreeeport Scoble Microsoft Blogger

Well, another Valentines Day is in the can and a little word called brrreeeport enjoyed its first day of life with some attention. At 5:22pm on February 13th 2006 Robert Scoble aka (the Microsoft Blogger, Scobleizer, or Scob) had this to say on his blog:

"Here, let’s play a game. Everyone in the world say “brrreeeport” on your blog and you’ll be listed on this Technorati page automatically. Heh. There are also no pages on the Internet linked to for that term on Google, Yahoo, or MSN.

So, now you too can take down the man! Get your due! Get around the gatekeepers. Tell all those A list bloggers to screw off and die! Heheh. Or, you can let me own that term all by myself! Heheh.

Filed under: Blog Stuff, BlogCode, brrreeeport @ 5:22 pm "

The word brrreeeport, slowly began to propogate through blogs around the world. The word is catchy and interesting to look at. The feedscott view tank blog caught wind of the mission at 9:00 am on the 14th and proceeded to set brrreeeport free into the blogging wild. Brrreeeport had appeared on the Techorati most searched for term list along with Cheney, Mohammed Cartoon, Dick Cheney, and Valentine. There were about 90 blog posts with the word brrreeeport. At that time brrreeeport had become more searched than the Mohammed Cartoon so the feedscott view tank post was entitled "brrreeeport beats out the Mohammed Cartoon".

At 11:29am Scoble posted this subject Tips for joining the A list where Scoble gave mention to the feedscott view tank blog title "brrreeeport beats out the Mohammed Cartoon" saying

"Now, look at the 98 brrreeeport results on Technorati. All are on the same topic, right? But some headlines stand out from the noise. Which ones grab your eye? The one that says simply “brrreeeport report?” Or the one that says “brrreeeport beats Mohammad cartoon?” Conflict is a story telling device. Use it in headlines!"

Thanks for the mention and plug Robert!

As the day went on brrreeeport continued to gain blog share and at this time is the #1 most searched word on Technorati, has 227 posts reported, and is in the top five tags being used. To give you an idea of scope Technorati is tracking about 27.9 million blogs and growing every day. So the % of posts is relatively small, but the interest and curiosity is amazing.

The brrreeeport now has t-shirts available online, and some entreprener has registered the brrreeeport domain name. Good luck!

feedscott will keep an eye on brrreeeport.

On a side note Robert Scoble will be in my home state of Colorado for the:
