Heute Nacht wurden die Nutzer von Delicious per Mail informiert, dass der beliebte Social Bookmarking Dienst den Besitzer wechselt. Nicht mehr Yahoo sondern AVOS ist künftig der Betreiber. AVOS ist ein neues Unternehmen von Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, den Gründern von YouTube und den Mitentwicklern von PayPal. Liest man diese Historie, scheint der Wechsel für Delicious-Nutzer kein Nachteil zu sein. Die beiden scheinen zu wissen was sie zun. Die komplette Nachricht:
