Technorati saves Maryam’s day

Google didn’t help Maryam (my wife). MSN Search didn’t help. What did?

Technorati!

What happened? Maryam desperately wanted to see one of her favorite authors but the show was sold out. She tried all the usual tricks, but finally she found someone with tickets on Technorati.

Along these lines, lots of people have been telling me their skepticism of Edgeio, which is a service that lets you sell things right from your blog. “Sounds like a recipe for spam,” one guy told me today when we were talking at lunch.

But Maryam’s experience is exactly why I’m interested in Edgeio’s potential.

Hey, MSN, when are we gonna get blog search of our own?
