Gabe Rivera gave me a heads up that TechCrunch was going to be breaking the news about the new TechMeme leaderboad set to launch tomorrow.

Duncan Riley captures it best in the comments section of the TC post, “Very cool, and my last reason to use Technorati has been taken away.”

Competition, management issues, lack of focus, and perhaps even lack of vision and leadership has rapidly deteriorated Technorati’s position as the flagship hub of the blogosphere.

It’s last unique differentiator was its unbiased listing of top blogs. Well, Techmeme just announced that it will publish a top 100 list of blogs, which is refreshed every 20 minutes, loosening Technorati’s stronghold.

The Techmeme Leaderboard lists the sources most frequently posted to Techmeme. Rumor has it that we were #101 ;)

Sources are ranked by Presence, the percentage of headline space a source occupies over a 30-day period. Discussion links are not taken into consideration, only full headlines are counted.

Update: Dave Winer runs the top 100 list (notice how it’s split between new media and traditional media):
