Yahoo! and
Story Text:

Jeremy tells us that Yahoo! are now the owners of the ping service. The site has been on the market since early March...

Former owner Jim Winstead breaks the news...

this is the sort of good home that i was looking for — yahoo! obviously has the resources to run and improve 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.

And what are Y!'s plans? Not much it seems...

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).

Notice they got the little favicon in there real quick too heh...

thanks Michel!


Congratulations Jim and that

Congratulations Jim and that probably exlains why he never responded to my offer!
