IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

What’s Next for Delicious?

Is Delicious being shut down? And should I be worried about my data?

- No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.

What is Yahoo! going to do with Delicious?

- We’re actively thinking about the future of Delicious and we believe there is a home outside the company that would make more sense for the service and our users. We’re in the process of exploring a variety of options and talking to companies right now. And we’ll share our plans with you as soon as we can.

I can't even tell you what a relief this is. Collapse )

But for now, DELICIOUS LIVES. We are all very happy about this.

A few reminders:

The Write Christmas contest (which I am judging!) is still open for entries.

A new-but-belated Secret Life of Dolls did go up on Monday; the next one can't really have any pictures, so it ought to go up on schedule tomorrow.

Not sure when a new Varney will go up, but that's on the table next. Although I also need to do a good solid movie linkspam.

And then I will go back over to Delicious and roll around in my many, many Victorian research links and it will NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN.
