Technorati Sale?

    August 11, 2005

B.L. Ochman thinks she has the inside word on the impending sale of Technorati to a large search engine – interesting times we live in.

She writes:

Here’s a tip I was given this morning from a venture capitalist who is “heavily invested” in the blogosphere: Technorati is about to be sold to a large search engine company. The deal should go down in about a week.’

Update – interestingly Robert Scoble wrote this today:

Speaking of fortunes: watch for several acquisitions in the next few months of blog services. The money is starting to flow. The consolidations are starting to happen.’
