Techmeme: because no-one actually searches anymore

Am I a newbie Techmeme user who just doesn’t grok it, or is it truly crazy that Techmeme does not have a search function?

I mean, I get the Archives thing, but I find it a little cumbersome to be switching out dates manually, typing in when I think the story I’m looking for might have been on the front page. It’s a little archaic, frankly.

When I know exactly what story I’m looking for, and I have two or three keywords that I can search on to find it … why should I have to manipulate Techmeme space and Techmeme time just to find what I want?

That’s what computers are for. That’s what search is for.
