News sites vs. Blogs vs. Wikis

The story goes like this: pioneering bloggers Dave Winer and Rogers Cadenhead made a long bet with Martin Nisenholtz, the senior VP for digital operations at the New York Times.

The bet was:
"In a Google search of five keywords or phrases representing the top five news stories of 2007, weblogs will rank higher than the New York Times' Web site."

As 2007 draws to a close, Cadenhead does a count and finds out that blogs beat the Times in Google results.

However, Wikipedia beat both Blogs and News Sites on four of the top five news stories.

- Would love to see a comparison of technology stories rankings for blogs, news sites and Wikipedia, but do people go to Google News for tech stories?

- Would also love to see an annual rating of tech stories on MSM vs. Blogs.

Some bloggers are light years ahead in terms of doing tech analytical pieces but that is just an opinion.

That's sacred info you're after their my friend. Here's what you can do.

Choose a story that interests you, and do a blog search on it for the last 24 hours. The do a web search on for the last 24 hours (exclduing MSM site). Then take lets say 5 MSM sites and search them for your story. It will tell a tale which I would love you to share with us.
