Bitly Labs Announces 'Realtime' (Beta) Attention Ranking Engine

Bitly Labs Announces 'Realtime' (Beta) Attention Ranking Engine [blog.bitly.com]
Realtime is an attention ranking engine, offering the power to navigate through the stories that the world is paying attention to right now.

Realtime allows you to filter attention by location, network, language, and topic. Want to see all stories about food being clicked on from Facebook? All of the stories about coffee? Easy. Stories only remain in the system as long as they are actively receiving attention.

There’s a bunch of fun technology under the hood. We fetch the content of every link saved or shared through bitly, analyze that content, then build models of human attention by analyzing the click distributions to the stories we see (at the phrase, URL, and story levels).

I've been playing with this a bit recently. In the beginning I wasn't getting much content I couldn't get elsewhere. However they seem to have more data now and I can occasionally spot an upcoming topic before it is well linked by everyone on the SNS.
