Persistent Search

This morning’s FT suprisingly focsed on two vertical, persistent search engines. An article on Monitor110, a US-Based version of Magpie, which apparently has attracted funding from Draper Fisher Jurvetson. Monitor110 will be launching in spring of 2007 according to the article. Also, Zibb.com wascovered deeper in the paper.

I posted about our own persistent search company, Magpie a few days ago. There are clear parallels between Magpie’s offering and Monitor110, however they are targeting different markets with different approaches. Magpie have signed some exciting deals that will be announced shortly which will make the differences even more apparent. Vertical, persistent search is getting really interesting.
