Reuters reports that Blinkx has named a CEO.
Effective immediately, Mark Opzoomer, former managing director of Yahoo Europe, is at the helm.
The Reuters story goes on to mention that Microsoft has plans, "to launch a test version of Blinkx's desktop search." News to me.
Also, Rafe Needleman at AlwaysOn sits down with Blinkx co-founder, Suranga Chandratillake, and asks, "how Blinkx will survive the Google onslaught."
