The mysterious buyer of online calendar Kiko has stepped out of the shadows, revealing himself to be Elliot Noss, the CEO of Tucows.
Tucows, a software and applications aggregator, paid about a quarter of a million dollars to pick up Kiko, which was offloaded via eBay after the founders became distracted and started working on new projects (ok, Google Calendar had something to do with this too).
So why did they buy it?
Traffic to the largest classified advertising websites has grown by almost 50% in the last year, according to new research.
Later this month we'll be hosting an event aimed at helping digital agencies to figure out how to win those projects that are worthwhile from a strategic perspective.
Why is this necessary? Well in these busy times there needs to be a little more thought involved in the business development cycle - it isn't 2002, when agencies were foraging for any sort of work.
On the face of it, digital / interactive agencies have never had it so good, but there are underlying reasons for pitching for Project X but declining to get involved with Project Y...
For most busy people, the desktop is their short term dumping ground for files that they intend to put somewhere specific. The BumpTop is meant to make your messy computer desktop more like a messy real desk top - but do users want that or would they find a file explorer's built in organisational system more usable?
Recent moves by social networking sites into the digital music business have been backed by a new report.
The 2006 Digital Music Survey, carried out by Entertainment Media Research, shows the likes of Bebo and Myspace have a strong influence over the way listeners’ discover and purchase music online.
An interview with Paul Graham on TechCrunch is attracting flak from the blogosphere for the investment criteria he uses for Y Combinator.
Last week we witnessed the sale of Kiko, a well-designed Y Combinator-funded online calendar. The deal went through via eBay to an as-yet-undisclosed party, for a quarter of a million dollars. Which is a good return for Paul and the Kiko founders, but not the really big bucks that they would have seen had Google bought it. Google of course launched its own calendar app, integrated into Gmail, which prompted the Kiko sale.
So does a fire sale on eBay, albeit a profitable one, mean that Graham is any more correct when he advises startup founders not to worry about business models?
Rand at SEOmoz has published another fine article, this time on how to attract more traffic to your blog.
The article contains 21 tips, including ‘Choose the right blog software’, ‘Tag your content’, ‘Only one post in 20 can be linkbait’ and ‘Use a human voice’. Rand’s post is linkbait of the very best variety, since it is original, valuable content, so I’m linking to it.
A couple of weeks ago I finally decided to ask Barclays why I was paying a monthly fee on an overdraft that I haven’t used for a long, long time.
I knew that finding an answer to this simple question could be a painful process, but I braced myself and set about to find out what was happening...
Hundreds of internet pros turned up for last night’s Lemon Studios Summer Party at The Havana Bar & Club in London, which was roaring good fun.
Many attendees will be in full-on recovery mode judging by some of the strategic quaffing we witnessed. The cocktails were especially dangerous, particularly those that were tipped into glasses the size of small baths.
