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:
The Death of Upcoming.org
— So, Yahoo's finally decided to close Upcoming.org, the events community I started nearly ten years ago. And, in Yahoo's typical f**k-off-and-die style, they're doing it with 11 days notice, no on-site announcement, and no way to back up past events.
No Copyright Intended
— On October 26, a YouTube user named crimewriter95 posted a full-length version of Pulp Fiction, rearranged in chronological order. — A couple things struck me about this video. — First, I'm surprised that a full-length, 2.5-hour very slight remix of a popular film …
Heello is Twitter for Pretending
— It's easy to write off Heello as a Twitter clone. Created by the founder of Twitpic, the shameless knockoff looks and behaves like a stripped-down version of Twitter, down to the [tweets] pings, [followers] listeners, and [retweets] echos.
Kind of Screwed
— TL;DR version: Last year, I was threatened with a lawsuit over the pixel art album cover for Kind of Bloop. Despite my firm belief that I was legally in the right, I settled out of court to cut my losses. This ordeal was very nerve-wracking for me and my family …
How I Indexed The Daily
— For the last three weeks, I've indexed The Daily. Now that my free trial's up, I've had an intimate look at what they have to offer and, sad to say, I don't plan on subscribing. As a result, I'm ending The Daily: Indexed, my unofficial table of contents for every article they published publicly.
The Daily: Indexed
— Anybody else think it's weird that The Daily, News Corp's new iPad-only magazine, posts almost every article to their official website... but with no index of the articles to be found? They spent $30M on it, but apparently forgot a homepage! — So I went ahead and made one for them!
Joining Expert Labs
— Big news! I'm very happy to announce that I've joined Expert Labs as a Project Director, working alongside the wonderful and talented Anil Dash and Gina Trapani. (Read the official announcement.) — Our goal's to help government make better decisions about policy …
Attribution and Affiliation on All Things Digital
— Getting linked from a high-profile website is almost always a huge compliment, well-received by any blogger. But Monday morning, I saw two friends taken by surprise when they were featured on the front page of AllThingsD …
Pirating the 2009 Oscars
— The Oscar nominees were announced this morning, which means it's time to get out your scorecards to see who's winning in the eternal struggle between the MPAA vs. the Internet. (Hint: It's not the MPAA.) — I've been tracking the distribution …
