So, Ed noted that Yahoo! continues its attempts at rehabilitation with the purchase of del.icio.us. When they pulled this with flickr I was momentarily put off, but the big disruption seemed to be, well … another place to use my Yahoo! login.
Flickr’s still fine, and it even has some new stuff I was hoping for. I don’t want much more from del.icio.us than to continue to be what it is. So as long as nothing Yahoo adds sucks or ruins things, I guess we’ll be o.k. on that front, too.
It never pays to underestimate a company’s will to suck, though. And Yahoo’s brief period of not deliberately destroying flickr doesn’t offset the whole GeoCities thing, or more recent sucktitude.
