Technorati

Over a year ago, when I was just thinking about starting The Personal Bee, I sat down with Dave Sifry (CEO of Technorati) to chat. I felt then that the work I wanted to do was a perfect complement to Technorati.

While the timing wasn't right then for us to bring these ideas to Technorati, Dave and I maintained a friendship and communication over the 9 months that we built the first beta version of Personal Bee. And after we launched that beta, in September of last year, Dave and I agreed that we should have another conversation about bringing the two companies together.

I am happy to announce, as Dave has on his blog, that as of today The Personal Bee is a part of Technorati.

All of us on the Bee team are excited about the opportunity to participate in the evolution of Technorati, and to Be of Service to Technorati's many constituents.

congratulations Ted - this is great news! am very interested to see how this great product will get integrated into technorati - but the company really needs some help in regards to making a coherent brand story and reaching out beyond the echo chamber...

looking forward to seeing you sometime, and somewhere really soon - maybe lunch in South Park?

umm- that last comment was from me, but for some reason had me logged in as our catchall gmail account - google should not have that integrated like this...
