What Happens When You Blog

The February 2008 issue of Wired magazine offers an interactive graphical depiction of what happens to your blog post once you click the publish button. "The Life Cycle of a Blog Post, From Servers to Spiders to Suits — to You" shows all the interactions between the blogger, the aggregator, spam blogs, and (the whole point, right?) the reader. The Flash graphic depicts all these interactions and makes somewhat clearer how your post gets to wherever it’s ultimately consumed.
