Techmeme Search finds "items", i.e. blog posts, news stories and tweets, that have appeared as headlines on Techmeme.
Items listed only in the "More" areas are excluded from results.
By default, only the title and first few sentences are searched. Unchecking "Search title & summary only" extends the search to the full body text.
Quoted phrases, wildcards, and standard search operators like + (plus), - (minus), AND, OR, NOT, and parenthesis are all supported.
Narrowing searches based on url, author, date, and other attributes is also possible. For instance, the query [ Streisand sourcename:Techdirt ] restricts searches for "Streisand" to items from the blog "Techdirt".
Examples of other operators follow:
Getting Steve Jobs Wrong
— Exhibit A in the case against Walter Isaacson's flawed Jobs biography: Malcolm Gladwell in last week's New Yorker, arguing that Jobs was “a tweaker”: … Jobs was neither. These men make for a poor comparison to Jobs because Jobs didn't really “invent” …
Gladwell proves too much

Exclusive: Biz Stone on Twitter and Activism
— The New Yorker recently published a thoughtfully written article by Malcolm Gladwell titled, “Small Change: Why The Revolution Will Not Be Tweeted.” Citing research done by Stanford sociologist Doug McAdam, Mr. Gladwell compares …
Twitter Founders: Gladwell Got It Wrong
— “Laughable,” “absurd,” “ludicrous” and “pointless” were words Twitter founders Ev Williams and Biz Stone used Monday night to describe a recent Malcolm Gladwell story in the New Yorker about the futility of social media to create real social change.
Sorry, Malcolm Gladwell, the revolution may well be tweeted
— Malcolm Gladwell is wrong about the poor revolutionary power of social networking, as the tweeters in Kashmir show — For a man who has devoted a significant part of his life to documenting “how little things can make a big difference” …
Make The Revolution
— Malcolm Gladwell gets started with “The revolution will not be tweeted” in this week's New Yorker, condemning social media's ability to enact real cultural change with an argument he sums up early in the piece: … Who are the “they”? It's not really clear.
Love, Magic, & APIs — I will confess, I am old enough to remember my GeoCities page. Don't hate. It was amazing, it was... this transformative moment in which I took real, actual information, and transformed it into something visible and memorable.
Hive 0.11, Stinger and SQL-Compatibility — The release of Hive 0.11 is exciting and represents a big step forward to delivery of Project Stinger and SQL-IN-Hadoop. There is still some work to be done however.
