Yahoo! Eats del.icio.us
del.icio.us – one of the greatest services on the net – has been acquired by Yahoo!. This news just dropped a couple of hours ago. I really like del.icio.us – it has a no-frills approach to social tagging and organization. The blog entry I linked to has a really mixed bag of comments to it. Most people are happy for the founder, and then there are those vocally opposed to the yahoo-ization of it.
I will be happy as long as the simple approach to tagging and organizing stays as is. Sticking ads at the top and bottom wouldn’t be an issue for me. But if it looks remotely like Yahoo mail, home page, or any of their other properties with clutter and crap all over them, I’ll be ticked.
