Topix.net has added news channels to track any stories for 2,500 privately-held startups, scanned from the 10,000 sources Topix.net is crawling. The tracking channel was designed in association with Bob Karr’s LinkSV.com, which maintains the database of private company profiles which we’re using for the automated news scan. There is also a related channel which tracks press releases from any of the same 2,500 startups. In addition we’ve got a general Venture Capital industry news channel.

    Everything you said about Google was very kind.

    “We love you, Google Users!” Sergey and Larry at Webby Awards

    Gah Gah Over Google

    GOOGLE = UNIQUE
    SEARCH = GOOGLE
    ENGINE = CARING
    CARING = GOOGLE
