Feedburner Goes to Google – Another Loss for Yahoo

200706011808Google has officially announced the acquisition of Feedburner today.

I also have it on good authority that Yahoo approached Feedburner nearly a year ago about an acquisition and they walked away. Apparently they were looking to get $30M but this price tag was just too much for Yahoo.

Of course hindsight is always 20/20.

    So over the last few days you’ve slagged off Six Apart, Flickr, and now Yahoo. I’m looking forward to the next web 2.0 company you stick the knife into.

  2. Ha… was that sarcasm? I’m not slagging them off….. it’s the truth.
