Yahoo acquired del.icio.us. Congrats Joshua!
Wonder what was the price per tag. What this really means is that Yahoo Social Search is a serious alternative for everyday use.
UPDATE: Let me explain the above statement.
Yahoo Social Search always held promise of more relevant, useful and fun search. Just one problem. Not only did I have to use it for it to be useful, so did my friends. Now, with the del.icio.us acquisition, my online social network does. Then consider the high-level metadata they have with del.icio.us, Flickr, Upcoming and more to come; and how they leverage it to enhance search overall. That is, of course, if they respect the social contact with the community and continue the process of opening (they are far from done).
In other words, because of this move, Yahoo may become my primary search engine. This monopoly game is getting interesting.
My bet for the next acquisition? Feedburner.
