Len Meets Larry

1:00 PM -- When we wrote about the new ventures from Len Bosack and Larry Roberts (XKL LLC and Anagran Inc. , respectively), it did occur to me that the stories were nearly the same: an Internet pioneer's startup trying to change the way the Internet is used. They launched on the same day, so I probably could have given them the same headline, or at least identical summary blurbs.

I didn't, because Anagran and XKL are in completely different spaces, and because no one but me would have been amused by this. But yesterday's Wall Street Journal at least took notice of the similarities.

Too bad they got the XKL product name wrong. (The real name is DXM. Go check the WSJ article online before they correct it.)
