Seattle Times on small search companies

Findory was mentioned in a Seattle Times article covering search companies in the Seattle area. There's a brief discussion of the rapid growth of our tiny personalization startup. And an amusing picture of me that I think truly captures the inner geek.

UW CS Professor Oren Etzioni has a great quote in the article: "Could we build a search engine that learns from the Web? ... Imagine a program that is running and constantly learning from the Web and getting smarter over time."

It's an excellent vision, the dream of many AI researchers, understanding the vastness of knowledge stored in the Web.

You modestly neglected to mention that they had a nice write-up on you as well.
