LargeSmall non-existent

Posted by joy


Looking through my log files, I find a crawler from a company that doesn’t yet quite exist on the Web, the user agent sans descriptive URL looked sorta spammy, so I had to Google them.

Not much on the homepage but a three columned div layout with a Web 2.0 green background, a commented out section in the source code about who is investing in them, and this hyperbole filled description….

“…an exciting new disruptive media and content publishing technology with many interesting applications.”

If anyone can parse that quote (into meaningful dollars), please let me know. All I know is that they are sending a crawler out to fetch feeds, how they are going to parlay that into content, I’m not sure.

    Does “disruptive media” have any meaning at all?

    I can’t puzzle one out, at least not any meaning I’d want associated with my investment.

    Suspect that their business model will work this way:
    Clients will pay them to crawl blogs etc for any comment on either their own company or their competitors so that said company can attempt to manage or control their public image.
    Several companies are already working this field.

    Google: ra (leave this part out) di (and leave this part out also) an (now add the numeral for six) and this will give you the business model. I have deliberately not written out this companies name as is because if I did there crawlers would be over this blog like a rash.
