Matt reports on Spock, a search engine for people. From his post:

From a demo we’ve seen, we think it could be a powerful addition. Spock could take this in some interesting directions. Its main challenge will be to wean users from Google as a first stop, though more on that in a sec.

When Spock launches, it will have 100 million profiles of people in its database, by far the largest open repository of profiles anywhere. Spock delivers a mixture of facts and research on a people, but also opens a profile to social input, giving it a touch of Wikipedia.

    Seems like zoominfo has this space to themselves right now but focused more on business profiles. Should be interesting to see some competition. Could this compete with IMDB also?
