More on Reuters’ Funding of Pluck

We mentioned briefly yesterday about Reuters funding of RSS tech and syndication firm Pluck..turns out, according to FT, that Reuters was the one who contributed the whole $7 million funding…it also says that Reuters has started offering its media customers a feed of high-quality blogs for display on websites alongside more traditional newswire feeds, though I am not sure if that means they are also on Reuters terminal.
Pluck syndicates nearly 3,000 blogs to news outlets in the US, including The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle. Reuters plans to extend this service to its clients, with strong demand seen initially in the UK and the US.
