Technorati Greasemonkey script removed

December 06th, 2006 – 7 Comments

In response to my previous post about unlimited API queries, I was urged by David Sifry, CEO of Technorati, to contact the Technorati developers and work out a way to get my script working through the API.

I then contacted the developer team and got a great fast response from Ian Kallen, and we’ve been looking together at a way to get this to work without bashing the hell (my words) out of their servers. Up till now that didn’t work, and they have asked me to remove the script for now.

The official statement: “The query pattern and absence of caching exhibits an operational pattern that we can’t presently support. However, we’re happy to work with you in the days ahead to provide a scalable interface to support this functionality.

Let’s see what comes of that! For now, I’m taking the script down.
