Eurekster Reels In Red Herring Award
Community search site Eurekster has been selected as one of the Red Herring 100 North America award winners; the awards recognize private technology firms that push and break the boundaries of the business of technology.
Eurekster’s Swickis can be found on sites like Popular Science and Hollywood.com, where they create ‘buzz clouds’ of search terms based on what users search for the most on a website.
As more users submit queries through the Swicki search, the cloud grows and terms become bolder as their number of searches increases. Eurekster calls it community powered search, and it has been recognized by Red Herring as one of its 100 favorites in North America for 2006.
“We are honored to have been selected by Red Herring for this prestigious award that serves as a testament to Eurekster’s vision, technology and business model,” said Steven Marder, CEO & co-founder of Eurekster.
Marder will also take part in the Red Herring Spring 2006 CEO summit, taking place in Monterey, CA. Previous early movers spotted by Red Herring’s editorial staff include Google and eBay among many others.
Eurekster and the other companies recognized by Red Herring will participate in “The Pursuit of Disruption,” this year’s conference theme. Various speakers will cover topics in roundtable sessions, with award presentations taking place on May 25th.
