It’s official, Yahoo has made a definitive agreement to acquire Flickr and Ludicorp.
This is the third high profile Blog/RSS related buyout of 2005. Live Journal was bought by Six Apart, while Ask Jeeves snapped up Bloglines. Social Media Consolidation – Act 3: Call me Flyhckr?
Build it and they WILL buy! Now watch Stewart and Caterina do the dance of joy! (and Caterina will no long threaten to kick their ass). It’s nice to see a Vancouver crew hit one out of the park. And remember: Om Malik called it first.
