Technorati Loses Key Developer to Google

A key Technorati developer, Kevin Marks, has left the company and is now at Google, according to his blog. Just a month and a half ago Google took the lead as the top blog search engine from Technorait, and the loss of Marks to them is a further blow.

Technorati releases very little information to the public about itself, leaving us to mostly speculate on their financial health. This move could be a sign of trouble. If Technorati were a public company, this would be a good time to sell its stock short.
