  John Battelle's Searchblog: Why Topix Is Different: Toward A Sustainable Model For Net Media Companies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Topix then builds more than 150,000 topic- and location-specific pages, pages that live comfortably between the great gunky mass of search results, on the one hand, and the impersonal morass of most news sites on the other.
Topix is not interested in every web result that might be rendered for a search “news kentfield,” for example.
Topix also creates pages by subject; Skrenta argues that in fact many of their industry-related pages - Wireless, for example, or Search Engines, are among the best sources of business information in the free web.

 Forbes.com: Tokyo bourse wants TOPIX to reflect traded shares   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Despite the recent efforts of banks to offload shares in their borrowers, to shield themselves from market fluctuations, the number of Japanese shares freely floating on the market is low in proportion to the number listed on the bourse, on which the TSE currently bases the index.
