Bloglines Getting Bought? Who Next Flickr?

February 5th, 2005

Anyone else heard the rumor that Bloglines has been bought? No announcement on Mark’s blog, or to the internal list. Word on the street is they were purchased by Ask Jeeves, who has always been decidedly third rate. Alas.

update: some confirmation, and yes lots of people have heard it

update 2: I’m also hearing that flickr has fallen off the wagon (at the insistences of their funders), and will be going to Yahoo. Wonder how long till we see something on the flickr blog

update 3: Mark on the acquisition. No one else seems to have an independent source for the flickr rumor, but I’m sticking to it (I’ve heard a figure, but that seems confidential)
