Better late than never to comment on this, I suppose. Let me be the first to say that I don’t have the foggiest idea what the following means: By matching Tsavo’s media properties and search marketing capabilities with Cyberplex’s network of over 10,000 publishing partners, Cyberplex will offer an unprecedented value proposition to tier one [...]
I was not pleased to discover today that Canadian taxpayers — one of whom is me — are subsidizing Moxy Media, which used to be Geosign. But I was intrigued to learn about Orion Foundry Canada ULC. Wonder if Google knows about it?
Reuters reports that Avid Life can’t raise the funds to buy out Moxy Media. Can’t say I’m surprised.
Impeccable timing. While Moxy Media engages in silliness with Avid Life Media , Tim Nye sells Restaurantica to Yellow Pages. Wonder how much he got for it and if he’ll keep up his steakhouse reviews.
Okay, Geo watchers, Moxy Media, the company formerly known as Geosign is back in the news.

Finally turned up a link to the story on the alleged American Capital split with Geosign and, if it’s all true, that’s one expensive divorce. The biggest problems with the article are that a) it’s not clear about who got what and b) there are no sources other than a True Local spokeswoman whose name [...]
I’ve been on the dog beat lately, but Wellington Financial has some news on Geosign, the original version of which isn’t showing up in Google News. I’ll try and report back tomorrow. In the mean time, comment away. Here’s my original story on the whole Geosign deal.
