Bollocks to anyone buying Technorati. Utterly no point.
Google / Yahoo could bash out a similar service in without two days of coding time. The expensive bit is having the servers to index all the material. Resources that Google / Yahoo have in spades.
That just leaves the brand. Does it have value? Nope, it’s not Flickr. It has no brand recognition outside of geeky weblogs.
Frankly if I saw a major search company buy Technorati – I’d be selling my shares.

Technorati is only useful for those nostalgic for the experience of using a search engine pre-Google. Alas.
