One of the criticisms of Microsoft’s (MSFT) forthcoming “Bing” search engine is that it looks like a redo of what IAC’s (IACI) Ask.com tried (and failed at) a few years ago.
No holding back quippy former Ask.com CEO Jim Lanzone! (He’s now an entrepreneur in residence at Redpoint Ventures.)
Update: On Twitter, Lanzone says he was kidding and that Microsoft’s move is “smart.” We assumed he was being sarcastic all along. But happy to clarify.
@fromedome look at you stirring things up Don King! was just kidding response to kafka. glad to see MSN take this direction. it’s smart.
