Seekport launches dedicated European blog search

Filed as General with Comments Off

by

European search engine Seekport (www.seekport.co.uk) has launched a new blog search feature, the first dedicated European blog search.

Blog search results are indicated with an icon in the Seekport interface and users can narrow their search to one of 11 categories, including computing; cars and motoring; travel and holidays; government and politics; and business and finance.

Every hour, especially active blogs are indexed at www.seekport.co.uk and sorted by relevance and when they were last updated. Seekport provides easy access to British, German, French, Spanish and Italian blogs.

‘€œWithout an easy way to search blogs, internet users are missing out on some of the web’€™s richest and most original content,’€? says Joachim Kreibich, managing director for Seekport Internet Technologies GmbH. ‘€œNo other search engine has a comparable, language-specific blog search to offer.’€?

Osama Bin Laden has had enough of Adam Curry and is going to hijack his show. Whether or not he will subsequently be hailed as a hero and awarded a full pardon for 9/11 is yet to be seen, but is shortening in odds.

Report: RSS Is a Target for Worms

Filed as Uncategorized with Comments Off

by

wormsGot to love this headline from Steve Rubel Report: RSS Is a Target for Worms. Perhaps now I’m 30 maybe I’m regressing to 15 but all I could think of was that Dave Winer must have forgotten to take his worm tables again and his toilet bowl is showing the affects. But I couldn’t make jokes about RSS and worms without finishing it off in really poor taste, because there is a solution to worms: an Atom bomb :-)
