"Inform's technology scours news articles deeper than its competitors, it seems. (For instance, on a Web article that "jumps" four pages, Inform analyzes all four pages of content.) One thing that impressed me in talking with Goldman was how the service is being designed to integrate paid content. As he explains it, the idea is to search and catalog news that's behind registration and subscription walls. So, for example, Inform will index and analyze not only articles from NYTimes.com (user registration required), but also from WSJ.com (paid subscription)."
