Yahoo! and Del.icio.us come together

Today brings wonderful news on the folksonomy front, del.icio.us is now a Yahoo! property (Yahoo! announcement). The del.icio.us tool and Yahoo! MyWeb are two of my favorite tools out there.

There are many things I would like MyWeb to do, but would be difficult as they would be treading on IP of del.icio.us, which is delicate territory (just ask Blackberry/RIM). Del.icio.us would not be able to pull off the MyWeb improvements that come in the Yahoo! search, which now kicks anything Google is doing (Google has really fallen behind with search just because of this). Having both products, with del.icio.us hopefully becoming MyWeb 3, would make it nearly untouchable. Granted there is an insane amount of fixing that Yahoo needs to do with its social networking (or community tool as it calls it) under MyWeb, but that is not rocket science and hopefully would all be fixed in the next version of MyWeb.

Congrats all around on this one.
