Pity.... it was a good day until this point.

Still - I suppose you could argue that L$ and MSN deserve each other. Hopefully they will sink together.

anyone have any idea where the L$ small business listings show up?

MSN is so murky. They should just make deals with google and yahoo too. Why leave anyone out. I get a lot of traffic from them but, WOW, they have garbage results. All of the non tech people I know despise their search, they are always asking me what site they should use.

Sounds like they are doing everything they can to survive. I wonder what kind of revenue MSN and Alta are getting from it?

Stock creeps over $1, wow, 52 week low of .31 about a year ago. Surprised they weren't delisted from the NASDAQ....maybe that is on par for that index :)

No, that is a totally separate deal that is been negotiated with several different suppliers. A conclusion should be reached quite soon.

Looksmart has a market capitalizaton of over 100 million shares, which means they are worth a tenth of a billion bucks. That ain't chicken feed.

LookSmart would be a good stock to short, if they're valued that high. That's a joke!
