Coming into work this evening I find an email from Tom the Architect pointing me to this entry on the del.icio.us blog. Apparently Yahoo! has bought del.icio.us.
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 de.icio.us 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 del.icio.us folks. Well deserved.
Some Flickr users are pretty upset over the Yahoo! requirement that all Flickr users migrate to Yahoo! accounts, some threatening to leave the service once the final deadline approaches.
