  1. Matt, did you mean to provide a link here? I presume that you mean Matt Marshall of Silicon Beat. I couldn’t find the article you seem to be referring to there, but I did find a link to yet another Matt, Matt Cutts of Google, and his post on why he’s using WordPress rather than Blogger. Although he (Matt C) claims to have the design sense of a moose, he has enough sense to use the wonderful Almost Spring theme.

  2. So we already rank local categories by how many posts they have, so the categories you use the most are at the top.

    However WordPress.com has a very fun feature that shows categories that people have used globally across every blog on the system. Right now these are just alphabetical, when I showed Matt the feature he suggested that it order by popularity to increase the matching of tags/categories across blogs.
