Wired magazine has this infographic flow chart of what happens after someone posts on their blog. From aggregators to text scrapers, your posts live a life of their own on the Internet.

You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web.
It's on their multimedia section of the website, but the only multimedia aspect it has is zoom, which is a little disappointing.

Thanks Oliver for sending me the link!
