Clucast is a browser plugin for Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and aims to attach clues to certain text.  The clues include ratings, reviews, related blog posts, etc.  The clues are expressed in the form of audio, text, and video.  In terms of the plugin finding relevant content, the idea seems similar to Sphere.  It terms of it actually being a plugin and finding clues, the idea seems similar to AdaptiveBlue.

Saad’s previous company, Braintec was sold to Technisource.  Johannes Larcher is now on board with Clupedia.  Larcher was a former chief of staff at Overture before it was sold to Yahoo!.
