2 CANADIANS LAUNCH "ZENOME", A PROFIT-SHARING, WEB SEARCH DIRECTORY

Zenome Shares Profits with the Web Community Attention: Lifestyle Editor, Media Editor, Science Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor MONTREAL, QUEBEC --(CCNMatthews - Aug. 23, 2005) - Two Canadian university instructors have launched a Beta release of Zenome, a human-edited Web directory that allows free indexing. Highly innovative, Zenome is a social network with a social conscience as it pays ongoing commissions to category editors and enables editors to donate commissions to charity.

"Our goal is to be a comprehensive Internet directory that is built through collaborative effort. But instead of relying solely on the goodwill of individuals, Zenome shares advertising revenue with the people who contribute to its growth," remarks Zsolt Szigetvari, Zenome's founder. "This is our small way of giving back to the community."

John Connolly, Zenome's President, believes that Zenome's unique model will transform the way many Web directories interact with users, editors and advertisers not only through profit sharing, but also through the directory's ability to be interactive and self-organizing. "Our model uses advanced technologies that continually update and analyze the relevance of the results, based on searcher activity. Zenome is a new approach to directory search: one that is responsive to the needs of its users."

Szigetvari and Connolly also contend that human-edited directories offer their users true value. "That's why the community is such a key element of Zenome. Humans understand content and relationships between concepts in a way that machines simply cannot. Not only do our editors assure high quality sites, but they can create related categories. Information can be understood and utilized quickly, so that topics are timely as well as organized in a way that makes sense to the users," says Szigetvari.
