edgeio assets sold to Looksmart and Vast.com

edgeio’s assets were sold in December 2007, partly to Looksmart (the live service; the patents; the code; the trademarks) and partly to Vast.com (the real-estate related services).

Please direct all inquiries to one of those companies.

This blog will remain in existence as a historical record of edgeio.

edgeio was an audacious effort to build a fully distributed classified advertising platform for the Internet. It allowed any web site to post classifieds whilst having them syndicated, through edgeio, to any other web site. Aggregation and Distribution are going to be key to may new applications which seek to provide the glue between publishers and readers. edgeio can serve as a model for developers and product designers who seek to build on its legacy.
