Fortunately, as Jack Bauer tries to find his way around China next season, he’ll have Telcontar’s maps to help him.  And no – I really don’t think they are going to kill him – “he’s much too valuable.”

Technorati Is Fast Again

Comments (7)

If you haven’t used Technorati for a while because of either performance or accuracy issues, try it again.  Dave Sifry – Technorati’s CEO – has a post up describing their performance improvements.  As a Technorati investor, I’ve given Dave and team lots of steady feedback and have watched with happiness as the performance, relevance, and accuracy has steadily improved as they’ve continued to scale up and tune their infrastructure to handle the massive number of blogs that they are indexing.  Oh – and they’ve added a bunch of cool new features along the way.  Dave and his team listen – if you have issues after trying it again, email me and I’ll pass it on or give them feedback directly.

It’s last week’s news (literally) but if you are interested in hearing directly from Brent Simmons (NetNewsWire) and Greg Reinacker (NewsGator) on NewsGator’s acquisition of NetNewsWire, Niall Kennedy has a good interview online.

Look for more M&A news this week – everyone knows that Moreover has been acquired – the current rumor is that it’s Verisign again (who acquired Dave Winer’s last week).
