Life of a Blog Post

Wired has created a cool infographic about the life cycle of a blog post and how your content makes its way through a “vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web” before it eventually meets the reader’s eye:

What always amazes me is how fast Google indexes new content these days. It now only takes a matter of a few minutes from the moment you hit “Publish” to the time when a post can be found in the omniscient search engine. I often wonder just how long it will be before Google becomes a conscious being in its own right! Signs of this are already apparent with Google Reader now able to recommend feeds you might like based on your current subscriptions.
