B.L. Ochman was given a tip from a venture capitalist that Technorati is about to be sold “to a large search company.” I immediately thought of The Simpsons’ Kent Brockman from the Deep Space Homer episode in season 5. You can watch the 4.7 MB video clip of the ant overlords and have a good Friday.
As for the rumor? No comment but I hope any company interested in search and using Technorati’s services will check out the Technorati developer APIs to get a better idea of how they might be able to work with Technorati and its underlying data.
