Delicious Finds New Owner

On 20 December 2010 I wrote a post on Lessons From Delicious’s (Non)-Demise in which I suggested that, despite the tweet from Neil Sclater that “@mweller @psychemedia delicious. i rest my case” the speculations regarding the demise of Delicious shouldn’t be regarded as having any great significance for making decisions on use of Cloud services. Today I read that announcement that “Yahoo! Finds! Buyer! For! Doomed! Delicious!“.  Case dismissed 🙂

On the other hand, as was pointed out on Twitter, there will still be a need to assess the risks of loss of the service under its new ownership.
