Technorati announced the acquisition of Personal Bee, a service that allows its users to collect and publish news, entertainment and information from across the web. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
“With the addition of the Personal Bee technology, we are creating tools to facilitate the growth of this Live Web, which is the conversational part of the Internet that is dynamic, rather than static,” said David Sifry, founder and CEO of Technorati.
“By joining forces with Technorati, we are adding flexible publishing capabilities so that everyone can find conversations, track up-and-coming ideas and stories, and customize the Live Web in any way they like,” Ted Shelton, founder and CEO of Personal Bee, added.
Shelton is joining the Technorati team as Vice President of Business Development.
