Internet start-ups don't come much sharper than moreover.com. The site offers free access to news, anything from the South China Morning Post to Aberdeen's Press and Journal. Users simply click on any of 1,500 headlines to access their chosen article. 'We aim to kill the category,' says joint founder Nick Denton, 33, who compares the venture with amazon.com in its early days.
Denton was working as the FT's technology correspondent on America's West Coast when he decided that it would be 'more fun on the other side'.
So he quit his job in April 1998 and set up moreover.com with school friends, Angus Bankes and David Galbraith.
