One reason for lack of traffic is we're pretty boring!

The Living Stream still contains mostly stuff about FastBlogIt.  Once in a while we (I) publish stuff on politics or other blogs, but mostly the content doesn't attract people like the "famous" bloggers.

... yes, fbi is a social space more than it is an individual's blog.  There are a number of features here that bring that out ... let me enumerate some off the top of my head :
  1. the river, where everybodies posts flow
  2. prescence ... You are aware of who is here and when as shown in the Chat Whos here screen (this may be enhansed by putting people's prescence on every screen). 
  3. the idea of group and different people posting within that group is not in a individual blog.
  4. the way we feature comments and make them stand out
  5. ... look for more social features later
But keep in mind that what shapes this space is more determined by the people who contribute here, not by the technology.  As that mix changes, so will the feel of the site.

I think if you look at the pages of the "famous bloggers" you will find lots of posts about their pet project and the technology that goes into these projects. Web technology is of of vital interest to web developers and they will find no lack of that in the river. So that,taken alone, does not tell the whole story about your perception of the lack of interest in what does down here. But, i agree, posting items and comments of vital importance to an interest niche is certainly the way to build a readership.

I often wonder how to describe the content of this part of the blogosphere to another person in a way that would excite him or her to come here to use it. - It's a unique blog, but then what ? Why come here ?
The more famous the content then the more famous the blog. In a way fbi seems the most interesting as a collaborative effort to evolve a new kind of blog. - more an example of an agile emergence!
