Two Emails. Port and POSCASH regarding General Atlantic

From POSCASH:

Hello Morrie!

I wanted to run yhid by you and Portuno. I saw this post on the YHOO/MSFT board and something caught my eye! Is Network Solutions owned by General Atlantic getting ready to launch a Worldwide advertising campaign or am I nuts?

Here is the post:

http://messages.finance.yahoo.com/Stocks_%28A_to_Z%29/Stocks_M/threadview?m=tm&bn=12004&tid=1312128&mid=1312128&tof=2&rt=1&frt=2&off=1

Hey, I'm "pulse360.com" - And, I'm on another interesting Site ....And I'm part of the reason why MSN will "miss" the CIGAR with facebook, on Tuesday! And if you check my Privacy Policy, you can read about your opt-out "option" for "cookies", that we provide: "To opt-out of other behavior targeting programs not associated with Pulse 360, [click here] for the National Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt-out tool." http://www.pulse360.com/privacy.html

And the Link (that's the [click here]...that's provided in the above statement), is as follows: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managi...

Oh, and I must advise that all fellow members of the NAI have "access" to (yes, are compatible with) Looksmart's AdCenter (along with the "bid4KeyWords" alternative to Google's Adsense) and in addition, ALL members of the NAI allow publishers and advertisers, to "fully control their campaigns in all facets including their daily spend" ....

And the news is, that "Quigo" have just joined our growing membership (and AOL were already heavily "involved" with the NAI, through it's "advertising.com" and "Tacoda") Facebook will choose us with the "Bid4Keywords" platform (provided through Looksmart's AdCenter) on Tuesday as most ALL Major Ads Agencies will then have access to Facebook, including Yahoo, MSN [through ATLAS] and Google, (yes even Google), through Double Click's "Performics" ...... <>
> http://vortal.0086124.com/privacy.html "...Facebook will choose ......the "Bid4Keywords" platform ...." Well .....They'd be foolish not to, wouldn't they? After-all, they have been found to have been testing Ads through "ME" (pulse360.com) of late, now haven't they? Yes ....It should be a GREAT week for Looksmart's shareholders ...Finally!!!!! Re: I'm "pulse360.com" - And, I'm another interesting Site http://www1.investorvillage.com/beta/smb...

< "weather.com's audience is one of the largest, most respected and highly qualified on the Web and is a great addition to our network," said Lance D. Podell, chief executive officer of Seevast, Pulse 360's parent company. "It is clear that the Web's biggest and best sites require a partner with deep expertise to drive value for advertisers and publishers alike. We were thrilled to be chosen as a partner for weather.com and are confident that our advertisers will benefit from access to this world-class audience."

> Yes, that's Seevast that "owns" me ......Just as they "own" Moniker.com who have linked with DDN. Many "relationships" have recently formed, within the "Domain Space" ...... http://www1.investorvillage.com/beta/smb... We can put "The Weather" out on ALL those ("millions") of Domain Name Sites, plus other "vortal-ised" Article Content .... relative to each "name" (from Vortal.com) and with Ads, of course!! Sell them like 'plots on the moon" ....Cheapest @ $750.00 each, I'd imagine ...? I'd sell them by auction, but we'll get to that "point", (the "how to"), some other time.... <> THREE MILLION !!!!! Moniker.com (owned by the Seevast Corporation,) say they have customers that include savvy investors, Web entrepreneurs and forward-thinking global companies, including Marchex, Nokta, Future Media Architects, AOL, Yahoo, the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, Lions Gate Films, Bank of America, Microsoft, Jupitermedia, Geosigns, Mainstream Advertising and many others. [The last named there, "Mainstream Advertising", is "owned" by the probable Looksmart "new owner", (in Network Solutions), of course!] If you notice on the last paragraph of this post the last sentence states: [The last named there, "Mainstream Advertising", is "owned" by the probable Looksmart "new owner", (in Network Solutions), of course!]

So Network Solutions now owned by General Atlantic owns LookSmart?I found this old newslink here: http://www.shareholder.com/LookSmart/releaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=74489 Companies to Offer Suite of Web Site-Building Tools Herndon, Va. - April 14, 1999 - Network Solutions, Inc., the world leader in Web address registration, and LookSmartSM, the Internet's largest directory of quality Web sites, today announced a strategic alliance to offer domain name registration services and Web site-enhancing tools to businesses. As part of the agreement, businesses will be able to access Network Solutions' domain name registration and other services, including its Affiliate Program, from LookSmart's Web services area. Network Solutions' customers will be able to download LookSmart's free suite of site-maker tools, including its industry-leading Web directory, from a co-branded Web site accessible from Network Solutions' dot com toolkitTM resource center. An advertising and direct marketing campaign will be launched to raise awareness about the companies' one-stop shopping capabilities. "LookSmart is a young, aggressive company that is very well known by key industry players" said Doug Wolford, Network Solutions' senior vice president, marketing and sales. "Its partnerships with leading Internet sites will help extend Network Solutions' services beyond our current reach." "Network Solutions is a premier brand among Web masters and we're excited to work with them to distribute our site-building products," said Evan Thornley, co-founder and CEO of LookSmart. "This agreement gives us unparalleled access to Web site owners and tremendous opportunities to distribute our directory to this audience." Network Solutions provides online domain name registration in five easy steps. In addition to registration services, Network Solutions also offer the dot com mailTM personal, portable email service and the dot com biz cardTM service, designed to provide personalized business solutions that enhance online identity. These services are also available through Network Solutions' Affiliate Program. The agreement is part of LookSmart's unique distribution strategy that focuses on displaying its Web directory on the screens of as many users as possible through syndication and licensing agreements with other Web sites and properties, partnerships with ISPs and viral marketing. In addition to its directory, LookSmart currently provides free Web services including hit counters, chat rooms and message boards, to thousands of Webmasters. The company currently distributes its directory of more than 1,000,000 Web site listings to top Web properties including MSN, Netscape, HotBot, @Home, AltaVista and Bluemountainarts.com.

And then PORT responded in another email:

Morrie,

That's definitely a find. Much more now makes sense and it points to a very large operation in the background getting ready to spring.Here's some background on Looksmart:IBM got out of the laptop business and sold to Lenovo May 1, 2005 with funding to Lenovo from General Atlantic, Texas Pacific Group, Newbridge Capital Group.General Atlantic bought Network Solutions February 6, 2007netowrk Solutions owns Vortal Interactive.Vortal Interactive took over Looksmart.(A "vortal" is a "vertical portal")

post Sep 2007 by texas4qldStrange things happening at LooksmartI suspect that Looksmart are joing forces or being taken over by "vortal interactive" who is owned by "network solutions" who was recently bought by "General Atlantic" for $800 million.

http://sierrawebmarketers.blogspot.com/2007/10/myspace-invades-looksmarts-space.html

10/30/07MySpace Invades LookSmart's Space (excerpts)MySpace will take residence in the "LookSmart Building" according to BizJournals.com;"Los Angeles-based MySpace made a triumphant entrance into San Francisco last week at the Web 2.0 conference, throwing a bash at SFMOMA and announcing that it was opening an office in the city with about 200 employees.While the company did not disclose the location of its new offices, it has signed a letter of intent to take about 35,000 square feet at 625 Second St., according to sources. MySpace, part of Fox Interactive, ...... ."This is an interesting development. LookSmart leased the building in 1999 for all 130,000 + square feet of space for a ten year term....How can the full building accommodate the MySpace mob? ...it's possible too the primary occupant, LookSmart may be readying an exit themselves.Evidence exists to suggest they are in a deal of some sort with General Atlantic Partner property Network Solutions. NetSol property Vortal.com houses the 180 vertical sites using different URLs but the content appears to be the original LookSmart material.Network Solutions also leases the LookSmart AdCenter. Bid4keywords.com is the product and they have attached it to their evolving network of sites that include domain reseller Ditto.com and many others.Combine the information above with the fact CEO Hills, CTO Grubb and CFO Simonelli (already passed his announced departure date) have all quit and a picture of the future of LookSmart is unfolding.SFGate.com wrote about the MySpace move to San Francisco Oct. 15 and did not mention the address though they knew the exact neighborhood.Is LookSmart that far under the radar of everyone but a few shareholders?If something is afoot I credit the LookSmart employees for maintaining the code of silence.Absolutely nothing official or otherwise is coming from LookSmart lately that can shed light on what's really happening inside the big brick building.Shareholders must resign themselves to guessing.

(Gee. I guess we're not alone in guessing, right? heh heh heh)
