NY Times owns Blogrunner – or does it?

In my post earlier today Rating the Meme Trackers, one of the news clustering services I mentioned was Blogrunner’s The Annotated New York Times. It essentially remixes the NY Times, by clustering external blog posts that cite NY Times stories. Well today PaidContent.org posted an interview with NY Times VP of Digital Operations Martin Nisenholtz, in which Nisenholtz said that they acquired BlogRunner last year. According to PaidContent, the acquisition included The Annotated New York Times.

Only it seems someone forgot to tell the Blogrunner webmaster, because according to the homepage and About page, The Annotated New York Times is “NOT affiliated with The New York Times”. Huh?

In any case, it turns out NY Times plans to add Blogrunner/Annotated NYT to their own website, which is a fantastic idea. It will bring blogs well and truly into The Gray Lady’s orbit, not to mention remix culture.
