Technorati Article in Forbes

I ran across this today in Forbes – a story documenting the exit of some of Technorati’s employees and hinting that they are in trouble.   Technorati deserves alot of credit for their work in pioneering the blogosphere.  I believe that if it wasn’t for Technorati we wouldn’t have seen the rise of new emerging media players like Mike Arrington.  The technorati lists provides a much needed filter for the rest of the market to understand the rising stars and trends in blogging.  Also Technorati was the original ‘gold standard’ for blog search.  I agree there is more competition but I believe that Technorati will be a major player.   The market is so early and Dave Sifry is a smart guy so I expect Technorati to be around for some time.  

Pete at Mashable has a post up that asks: what should Technorti do?
