News Scoop

After the nanotech panel yesterday, I went to do some cheerleading at the News panel. In this photo, David Sifry, CEO of Technorati (center), explains that ~47,000 new blogs go up each day.

 

Jim Bankoff, EVP of Programming & Products at AOL (left), said that he uses Technorati to get a sense of the “live web”. “50% of AOL users have heard of blogs, and the number is rapidly growing. We try to capture the real-time Internet news cycle, and the swarming going on, to get the scoop on new developments.”

 

Here’s a list of panelists, from left to right. (full disclosure: we are investors in Technorati =)
