The Oddpost acquisition by Yahoo (at pretty handsome terms) has been announced. Oddpost provides web-based email and RSS aggregation, funded by Venture Strategy Partners and Draper Associates just months before.
Dave has a decent rationale for the acquisition:
With Technorati, Newsgator, Feedbuner, etc., get ready for the Social Software bubblet meme. Or at least some interesting Pops.
Look for many more startups in the blogspace to be bought over 😉 Ahh sweet.. Yet another boat missed..(May be not 😉 )When am I ever going to learn to implement any of my ideas 😦
