Looks like Yahoo! has aquired another Web 2.0 company - del.icio.us. I must say Yahoo! has been making some amazing acquisitions of late. del.icio.us will be a nice addition. I'm actually glad it was Yahoo! that picked them up, they seem committed to community and won't mess with it too much (I hope). It will be exciting to see how they integrate del.icio.us into their services.
The web wars keep heating up. Is Yahoo! edging out Google? Flickr and now del.icio.us...Yahoo! is now the Tagging King.
We're proud to announce that del.icio.us has joined the Yahoo! family. Together we'll continue to improve how people discover, remember and share on the Internet, with a big emphasis on the power of community. We're excited to be working with the Yahoo! Search team - they definitely get social systems and their potential to change the web. (We're also excited to be joining our fraternal twin Flickr!)
We want to thank everyone who has helped us along the way - our employees, our great investors and advisors, and especially our users. We still want to get your feedback, and we look forward to bringing you new features and more servers in the future.
I look forward to continuing my vision of social and community memory, and taking it to the next level with the del.icio.us community and Yahoo!
Congrats to the del.icio.us crew!
If you aren't familiar with what del.icio.us is or have never used it, here it a good article explaining what it is and why it's cool.
