Yahoo buys

Coming into work this evening I find an email from Tom the Architect pointing me to this entry on the blog. Apparently Yahoo! has bought

I rubbed my eyes a bit and did some looking around. Yep, Wired has an article, as does Reuters India, Techdirt, and a slew of other sites.

Its nice to know and Flickr will be around for a while. It will be very interesting over the next few months to see what other aquisitions are going to occur. According to EFYTimes, Google has its eye on Riya, the photosharing site that can uses face recognition technology to recognize people in yoiur pictures and tag them for you.

Anyway, congratulations to the folks. Well deserved.
