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:
What We Are Seeing
— The Wall Street Journal has a story out today that says “Web Startups Hit Cash Crunch.” There has been a fair bit of reaction in the tech blogs and I thought I'd toss into the discussion some things we are seeing: — 1) There are so many startups out there raising money.
What We've Lost And What We've Gained
— I shed my tears when Steve Jobs stepped down less than six weeks ago. That's when I knew it was over. The news came to me last night during a board dinner. My 18 year old daughter kik'd me. I asked her if she was sure. She said “it's all over twitter”.
After The Hype
— Loic Le Meur has a great post up where he talks about what happens after the initial wave of hype wears off. He wrote it in response to some negative posts about G+ but the situation Loic describes is something we see in almost all of our portfolio companies.
The Logged Out User (continued)
— I brought this subject up a while back. It's a big one that doesn't get enough attention. — And yesterday we got some stats from Twitter that I'd like to talk about. Dick Costolo gave a “state of Twitter” press conference yesterday at Twitter HQ.
— The media has had a lot of fun over the past week watching AOL, Huffington Post, TechCrunch, and Mike Arrington figure out how to move on. I feel badly for the TechCrunch crew including MG, Erick, Sarah, and many others. They are awesome at what they do and I feel …
Google+ Is An Identity Service
— Andy Carvin blogged some interesting comments by Eric Schmidt at the Edinburgh TV Festival yesterday: … I blogged about identity the other day and outlined my view that every social service is hosting a part of your identity online.
Users First, Brands Second
— I like simple ways to think about things. Like mobile first, web second. These kinds of constructs work for me. One that I've been using a lot lately to describe what we like and don't like as much is User First, Brands Second.
Identity, Authentication, and Provisioning Them Online
— Christina jotted down some thoughts on indentity on a flight to SF and I read them this morning. In her post, she references Ev's excellent post on the same topic from a while back. So I went on a bike ride as the sun rose …
On Porous Paywalls
— Felix Salmon has a couple great posts on the New York Times' paywall. He notes that it has been successful and explains why. Felix says: … I've been a fan and a proponent of porous paywalls since studying the FT's model a few years back and was very pleased to see the NY Times go with the FT's model.
There Will Be No Files In The Cloud
