The company introduced the MyST Web Services Platform™ and the MySmartChannels Weblog Application Server™ in 2003. Building on that technology stack, MyST introduced MyST Blogsite and MyST Enterprise RSS Services in 2004, MySmartChannels ORS™ (Office Research Services) and MySmartChannels Smart Tags™ (Microsoft® Office compatible smart tag subscription services) in 2005, and MyST Topic Cloud™ in 2006.

About The Founders
Bill French and F. Andy Seidl are each technology innovators and entrepreneurs with over twenty-five years experience in the software industry. Each has developed dozens of commercial software applications, tools, and services spanning a wide range of markets. Two separate acquisitions of their previous companies (Site Technologies, Inc. and Genitor Corporation) brought both Bill and Andy into Starbase Corporation.
At Starbase (now Borland), Bill and Andy joined forces in 2000, heading up a forward-looking research project, code named Elmer—Bill as Chief Ingenuity Officer and Technology Evangelist; Andy as Chief Architect of Emerging Technologies. Their research focused on the information tsunami that is plaguing businesses of all sizes and specifically how topic map (XTM) technology might be brought to bear on the issues of information and knowledge management.
In early 2002, Bill and Andy left Starbase to form MyST Technology Partners, Inc., with a vision of building a standards-based XML web services platform that could be used to chip away the many problems in information and knowledge management, search, and discovery that were not being adequately addressed within organizations.
