Has anyone checked out this Blogshares thing?

Near as I can tell, it's a kind-of online game that involves the buying and selling of shares in blogs -- like people do on the stock market with companies. Blogs are valued based in part on the number of links going out, the number of links coming back, and at least to a small degree who much buying and selling has been going on lately.

Or maybe that's a bigger degree than I would have guessed, as it seems the last week of a friend buying and selling shares in Caught in the Blog has driven the price from $0.29 to $17.00.

If you'd like to see it for yourself, there's a handy graph located right here. If you want to buy some shares in the ol' Caught in the Blog, now would be the time to do it, before their value goes up any further.
