From the interview:
Q.Does FAST plan to offer a fee-based URL inclusion program similar to those offered by AltaVista and Inktomi? I've seen some indications of a beta test of this on the FAST website scheduled for the summer of 2002.

FAST: FAST PartnerSite, our "pay for inclusion" program, will be launching in mid-February 2002. Our initial distribution partners will be Terra Lycos in the US and Lycos Europe in Europe. Additional portal distribution partners will be added soon.

Yep, WmW member Stephen Baker made some points over there - nothing really new though. Interesting was this:
our crawler is becoming more sophisticated and is able to seamlessly integrate numerous file types
(including content served by app-servers) into the web search index. We also possess the ability to work with online e-tailors, for example, to receive XML data feeds of database content.
