Okay, so it didn't fire out of the gate.  Clearly not another Netscape... Did you expect it to be?

But a local ad network did just pull in $54 million.  That is a success story; especially in this "dead" IPO market.   

The 'Local' issue is a very significant problem in the current market and ReachLocal has a good solution.  I've often thought about how stronger Local Internet Marketing could play out here in Little Rock, AR.  Needless to say, I think it would be a strong media option.    

Best of luck to ReachLocal.  I would not be surprised if they are hot acquisition target in the very future as Interactive Marketing continues to grow and there are any signs of a economic recovery.
