Could it be that human-guided search engine ChaCha has found its niche in a new partnership with blinkx?
ChaCha is a human-guided search engine. If you can’t find what you want using the search engine, you can be connected to a live human guide who will basically search for you. They began hiring guides in September (totally missed out on hiring me, guys!).
They received a new round of funding in January to the tune of $6M. Wonder if there’s some relationship between the funding and the development of this partnership.
