Great to see blo.gs has found a new and ‘big’ home. Just a few hours ago, blo.gs was officially acquired by Yahoo!. Read Jim Winsted’s (founder and developer of blo.gs) comment on this.
this is the sort of good home that i was looking for ? yahoo! obviously has the resources to run and improve blo.gs in pace with the incredible growth of blogs (and syndication in general), and in talking with them it was also clear that we had some of the same vision for the future of the service and the ping/notification infrastructure.
for users of the website and the cloud interface, nothing much is changing. the service will continue to be completely open, and both yahoo! and i hope you continue to use it and help it grow.
Unfortunately, Jim will no longer be operating blo.gs, but he promises he’ll still stay in the whole blogging community which is great to hear. None of the sides are revealing the payment details, but it is sure that blo.gs will continue to run as it is with no substantial changes. Also read Jeremy Zawodny’s comment on this.
