For some reason we just can't help covering the blog search wars. Our first run in with the fledgeling industry was our interview with Scott Rafer, the then-CEO of the then-rocking Feedster. A couple months after that he left the company along with one of its co-founders, Scott Johnson. We interviewed Scott J. about his new company Ookles, but also got to hear his analysis of what happened in his battle for blog search domination: “Dave’s wicked smart.” Referring to Dave Sifry, the CEO of Technorati, who we just interviewed. Keep in mind Dave's also faced competition already from Google Blog Search and Mark Cuban's IceRocket.
