The blinkx view of video search
May 22 - As shares in the video search company soar on their first day of trading, Blinkx Chief Executive Suranga Chandratillake looks ahead.
After demerging from the British search software specialist Autonomy Corp,. the online video search company Blinkx is making a strong debut on London’s Alternative Investment Market.
