A quick runthrough of some various searches came up with a wide variety of international responses, without much blogspam showing up, and significantly faster than what I’ve seen Technorati do for a very long time.
Some nice options to trim responses to show only Aussie Blogs and Aussie Media (and other options) are also included.
Granted Gnoos is not as feature rich as Technorati – not yet anyways – but I believe that they’re off to a great start.
Gnoos is, of course, also blogging.
