Seared Ahi Tuna, Bloglines, and Ask Jeeves

by , Comments

The San Francisco Business Times has a bit more about the Bloglines/Ask Jeeves deal in the article: Bloglines: Ask Jeeves exec gets his news fix with acquisition.

Being a fan of the service, I reached out to Mark Fletcher and set up lunch," [Jim] Lanzone [senior vice president of Search Properties at Ask Jeeves] said of Bloglines' CEO. The two met on a scorching September afternoon in San Carlos' A Tavola restaurant. Overheated and overscheduled, they skipped past small talk. Lanzone learned that Redwood City-based Bloglines, which by some counts has 50 percent market share for so-called feed aggregators, was being courted by VC firms and other Internet outfits. They continued their conversation again in November at a Berkeley noodle shop over seared ahi tuna.
