Techmeme Search finds "items", i.e. blog posts, news stories and tweets, that have appeared as headlines on Techmeme.
Items listed only in the "More" areas are excluded from results.
By default, only the title and first few sentences are searched. Unchecking "Search title & summary only" extends the search to the full body text.
Quoted phrases, wildcards, and standard search operators like + (plus), - (minus), AND, OR, NOT, and parenthesis are all supported.
Narrowing searches based on url, author, date, and other attributes is also possible. For instance, the query [ Streisand sourcename:Techdirt ] restricts searches for "Streisand" to items from the blog "Techdirt".
Examples of other operators follow:
