The New York Times Taps LookSmart For Times Select
Sep 30, 2005, 6:00 AM
The New York Times has recruited search company LookSmart to bolster its "TimesSelect" subscription service with search and bookmarking technology. Specifically, the "TimesSelect" feature called "Times File" is using a LookSmart search tool called Furl to help subscribers store Times articles and other Web content for easy retrieval. While the Times is the first publisher to integrate Furl since LookSmart began marketing the technology in mid-May, Viacom is also expected to begin licensing Furl soon, according to CEO David Hills.
