I’m not at the D conference this week, as business has kept me on the East Coast. But at that event, Jason Calacanis just launched his “people-powered search engine” and I happened to be meeting with one of his Board members here in New York. So I got a bit of inside scoop. Jason has a star studded line up of investors (from CBS to Jon Miller to Mark Cuban to Fred Wilson to many more), and a focus on the top search terms – the head of search, so to speak, including human brains (humans help organize the best results for the top search terms, as I understand it). More here, the site is not yet live. I’ve asked Jason for an interview, once he gets through the crush of D, I hope he’ll have the time to respond.
