Niche search 2.0: Startup Search, Techcrunch database and other possibilities

While covering StartUp Search, I mentioned that niche searches could achieve what broad human-search services couldn’t do.

I forgot to mention the soon-to-be launched Techcruch Database, an excellent database of detailed information about Tech startups, covering products, people, financials and more…

Techcrunch database can do it because it has a huge, almost unparalleled database of write-ups on Web 2.0 startups.

Next up
I envision Engadget and Gizmodo do something with Gadget databases, aggregating reviews, ratings, and news – these sites are in a position to channel their hue user base towards additional services.

Also up: Game database from Joystiq, Environmental Friendly product database from Treehugger…

Interesting possibilities. indeed.

Example of a Techcrunch Database entry can be found here.
