    Hey. Im a big fan of Technorati and other’s indexing and delivering real time results on todays internet. Couple questions – there was an initial bit of blogosphere backlash to technorati offering a competitive intelligence product to companies wanting to see what is said about them and competition in the blogosphere (and internet in general) and I was wondering what you thought about that. And secondly, where is technorati going in terms of advertising / adsense / cost per click / auctions / blogs etc.. esp with the growth that adbrite (30% per month) and related players like feedster (with their network, aol deal etc) and even feedburner on rss side.. Is the revenue scaling with usage ? or is too early to monetise today and tomorrow’s internet ? Nice1 Brad, Ben1
