So, do you manually type in the search words in technorati for your
name, GNOME and Ubuntu?

A friend of mine helped me write a python script that uses Yahoo APIs.
So. to get market penetration level for GNOME, Ubuntu, etc., the
script searches Yahoo, YAhoo News and Yahoo Podcasts. What I get is
how many times the keywords appear on the Web, News and Podcasts.
