Del.icio.us! – first thoughts

Del.icio.us has just made public that it joined the Yahoo! family.

The first impression upon hearing the news this morning – things are moving really fast for these guys. Close second would be some kind of uneasiness about where it’s heading.

I started using del.icio.us not longer than a couple of weeks ago, so it’s not wonder that I feel a bit surprised to become Yahoo! user so unexpectedly. As a matter of fact, till today I don’t recall using any Yahoo! services in general.

Maybe that’s where this feeling of uneasiness comes from. I appreciate simple services that just work, therefore I’m a regular Google client and consequently that’s why del.icio.us felt like home from the very beginning. On the other hand, these are not the virtues that I normally associate Yahoo! with.

I take a second look at my weekend agenda. Believe it or not, I was planning to give Simpy a try this weekend even before hearing this. Seems I wouldn’t be the only one.

Perhaps examining the properties Yahoo! is piling up would be worthwhile as well. After all, there must a plan to all of this, right?
