What ELSE happens to your blog post when you hit 'publish'?

I found this interesting post (it's a flash graphic) which shows what else (besides just appearing on your blog) happens (or can happen) to that post you just published.
"...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. Within minutes, if you've written about a timely and noteworthy topic, a small army of bots will get the word out to anyone remotely interested, from fellow bloggers to corporate marketers...".
The graphic is excellent. Please take a look. A picture truly can be worth a thousand words.
