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".

Apple's new pitch to investors
— Today's earnings report marks the point at which Apple is officially no longer a high-growth tech stock, valued on its monster potential. Instead, it has become a cash cow, valued on its ability to pump hundreds of billions of dollars into its shareholders' pockets.
The promise of Ripple
— This is a chart of the value of bitcoin yesterday, Wednesday. It's hardly a secret that bitcoins are a highly volatile asset class, so relatively few eyebrows were raised when the price soared from an opening level of $230 all the way to a high of $266.
How capitalism breaks the web
— I share most if not all of Anil Dash's nostalgia for the web we lost. Once upon a time, in the wake of the dot-com crash, there was a real feeling that the mammals would supplant the dinosaurs, and that the web would increasingly become a real network of individual sites …
Why Bloomberg is interested in LinkedIn
— As Henry Blodget realizes, the most interesting part of the latest speculation about Bloomberg buying the FT is buried en passant: … As Blodget also notes, this isn't really an either/or choice: the price tag for LinkedIn would be so gargantuan …
Annals of dubious statistics, crowdfunding edition
— Are crowdfunding statistics the new counterfeiting statistics? Certainly they seem to have become a meme. If you know that crowdfunding is a big deal, it's probably because you read all about it in TechCrunch, in May …
Is Kickstarter selling dreams?
— My theory, when it comes to buying lottery tickets, is that if you have disposable income to spare, then often the dreams and fantasies that accompany your lottery ticket purchase are in and of themselves worth $1. This is true not because dreams and fantasies …
Morgan Stanley's $2.4 billion Facebook short
— Matt Levine had a very wonky post on Friday afternoon about the dynamics of the Facebook IPO in general and of the very misunderstood greenshoe option in particular. Now that we've all had a nice relaxing weekend, it's maybe worth revisiting that greenshoe …
Google's evil stock split
— Count me in with Robert Cyran: there's something a little evil about the way that Google is splitting its stock, and in so doing creating a whole new class of non-voting shares. — There's a long history of such things: they were outlawed in the 1920s …
How Groupon accounts for its deals
— It's another bad day for Groupon: not only is Andrew Ross Sorkin using the company as Exhibit A in his opposition to the JOBS Act, but more worryingly the WSJ is now reporting that the SEC is examining the earnings revision which Groupon announced yesterday.
Aleynikov goes free
— Count me in, with Choire Sicha, as being very happy that Sergey Aleynikov is once again a free man. To cut a long story short, Aleynikov used to work in high-frequency trading for Goldman Sachs, earning $400,000 a year. He then got offered a job in Chicago, earning three times that amount.
