These days, the internet seems to be getting smaller. You really need to dig deep to find unique content, and it’s not easy to do.
Once upon a time, though, there was a search engine that highlighted blogs.
Richard Jalichandra is the former CEO of Technorati.com, which at one time was considered by many to be the gateway into the blogosphere. And, recently, Dan and Ian have become curious about why it disappeared.
On this week’s episode, Richard shares the story of Technorati, as well as the details of his long and storied career in the early days of the world wide web.
