Lycos on the block

Tip o' the hat to super-searcher Tara Calishain who points out in her latest newsletter that Lycos — which once battled AltaVista for search engine supremacy a million years ago — is being shopped around.

C|Net says Lycos' owner Terra Lycos has hired investment bankers Lehman Brothers to see if anyone wants to buy its search portal.

Not sure if that would be an easy task for Lehman. Who wants to buy something that would ultimately compete with Google on the eve of that company's IPO?
