Yahoo! acquires del.icio.us

Yahoo! has acquired del.icio.us today (via Om Malik) No financial details were released. Not sure what this will mean for the service. I recently started using del.icio.us more frequently as I’m finding additional uses for the service. A great example can be seen in this RSS News page I’m experimenting with for the EvolvePoint web site. Basically the idea is tagging relevant, topical links and using the RSS del.icio.us provides for a part of a web page.

For those not too familiar with del.icio.us, Jeremy Zawodny points to a great article entitled: What’s so cool about del.icio.us?
