DoubleClick and Kevin Ryan

I just read about DoubleClick being acquired for 3.1 billion by Google. Coincidentally I met Kevin Ryan, co-founder of DoubleClick, earlier today. These days he’s involved in several startups, he showed me a cool demo of one called ShopWiki. It’s a shopping search engine that indexes everything, not just paid feeds like Shopping.com does, and you can do cool stuff like search by color and neat range stuff.

Hey Matt
FYI, Kevin Ryan did not co-found DoubleClick. DCLK was founded by Kevin O’Connor and Dwight Merriman. Kevin Ryan came in later when they needed a seasoned CEO to run the business. Kind of like Larry and Sergey recruited Eric Schmidt, only in a slightly different world…. 🙂
