Erin Bradley of SearchViews blog posted a great interview with Mark Fletcher of Bloglines covering blog search, the Jeeves acquisition and something about the Tijuana police.
Blog Search – “There are 3 key components required to deliver world-class blog search: a deep index of blog and news feed content, the capability to find and index new content quickly, and world-class search technology that brings relevant search results to users. Bloglines is the only service that has all three elements.”
Ask Jeeves Acquisition – “Joining Ask Jeeves gives us the opportunity to run with the big dogs. The benefits include access to more resources, access to amazing brainpower, and access to world-class search technologies. The challenge has been hiring as quickly as we want to grow.”
What was your most memorable birthday – “Let’s just say that you never forget a birthday that involves the Tijuana police.”
Bloglines is certainly one of the easiest ways to search for blogs/RSS feeds and to aggregate them all into one location. I am very much looking forward to seeing what comes out of the blog search engine initiative with Bloglines and Teoma search technology.
