The Google-Kaboodle Connection

By Ben Charny  |  Posted 2006-04-17 Print this article Print

Three people with connections to Google are participating in a new, $3.55 million round of funding procured by the search engine Kaboodle.

They are Rajeev Motwani, a Stanford University professor who co-authored the research paper behind Google's PageRank; Georges Harik, former director of new products at Google, including Gmail and Google Talk; and Ron Conway, a Google advisor and noted investor.

Kaboodle organizes Web findings into lists of links, and makes the lists available on a single Web page.

Kaboodlers can open their findings to the public, thus morphing the feature into a kind of search engine built by committee. |
