Yahoo buys Delicious – Good all around

The fact that the most visited site on the Net has bought the premier tagging site should confirm that tagging is going mainstream.

Yahoo has profoundly not screwed up Flickr, so I have confidence that users are not going to feel betrayed or de-featured by Yahoo.

Most important, Yahoo is now in a position to become a tag broker, adding value to the act of tagging, thus driving more tagging, thus increasing the Web’s memetic value. With widespread tagging, the Web means more.

Congratulations to Joshua Schachter and the rest of the Delicious folks. [Tags: ]
