Which metrics matter?

Social scientists, nonprofits, philanthropists and parents of school-age children love to argue about which metrics matter. For a real-time "conversation" about this, on a metric that seems inherently quantifiable at first (the number of blogs) check out this new State of the Blogosphere Report (and the comments conversation that follows it) on Technorati.

If dead grandmothers create blogs (as well as vote in Chicago), how do we know what we really can count?
