Yahoo blo.gs

Yahoo has made another interesting acquisition, this time the blog tracking service blo.gs.

From Jim Winstead, blo.gs founder:

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..

Jeremy Zawodny of Yahoo comments:

What are our plans for the service? Simple. Keep it running, make it scale, and make it even better (a lot like the Flickr plans).

It’s great that Yahoo plans to continue blo.gs without major changes like flickr. Although it would be interesting to see whatimprovementss are in store. With Yahoo’sresourcess I’m sure at a minimum there will be infrastructure upgrades.
