Yummly raises $1.85M for semantic recipe searches Pushing forward with the trend for more and more narrow search technologies, Yummly has raised $1.85 million for its semantic search and recommendation platform for doing queries on recipes. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company makes the task of finding recipes simpler and more personal. David Feller, co-founder and chief executive of Yummly, said the company will use the money to expand its services. He said the company employs a cornucopia of algorithms to help it understand more than 15,000 food ingredients on a variety of levels (from nutritional value to taste). It combines that with knowledge of your own taste. The seed round of funding came from First Round Capital, Harrison Metal Capital, Intel Capital and angels. With its focus on doing search for one particular thing, Yummly resembles other successful sites such as Pandora Radio (songs) and Netflix (movies).

Meaninglessness MEANINGLESSNESS and EXISTENTIAL DEPRESSION "It is here that we encounter the central theme of existentialism: to live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering." - Victor Frankl Talk about it: What's the point?

The Most Insane Search Suggestions Ever Seen On Google We probably shouldn't be surprised by anything people Google at this point, considering we all rely on it for everything short of brushing our teeth for us. But these search suggestions are almost as insane as using Bing. Updated 10/13/11: Google has 2,076 job openings – Tech Products & Geek News If you have the talent and the enthusiasm there is no better time to apply for a job at Google. Not only has the company just raised its salaries for employees, but Reuters did some calculations and found there are 2,076 open positions. The number of jobs available is not through any mass exodus from Google to Facebook. Google is just ramping up on hiring which has seen the positions available increase six-fold over the course of this year. Half of those jobs are in the U.S. with most falling into the categories of engineering and sales. Google may already have over 23,000 employees, but it is still expanding and needs more staff for its core areas such as advertising, Android, and web services. Read more at Reuters Matthew’s Opinion Google’s job pages are well laid out into sections making it quite difficult to get an overall picture of just how many positions are open. The sheer scale of Google’s business, plus their continued need to grow, suggests they do need that many new people.

Anonymous Wants To Destroy Facebook Anonymous, the shady-yet-principled hacktivist group that has previously hacked into Iran's government emails, the Pentagon, possibly the IMF, News Corp, Anders Breivik's Twitter account, and much more, has a new target in its crosshairs: Facebook. The hackers have set the date for Facebook's demise as November 5, 2011. The reason? Ironically, they're worried about privacy. Full text of their press release after the jump. DATE: November 5, 2011. "Kill Facebook for the sake of your own privacy" -- doesn't that sound strange, coming from people who routinely steal private information as they please? Do you think every hacker announces everything they've hacked? Will Anonymous be able to successfully lay waste to Mark Zuckerberg's fortress?
