Interesting. From Mashable: "The future of social bookmarking tool Delicious is no longer in doubt. Yahoo has sold the site to YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen, where it will become part of a new company the pair has created called AVOS. According to an FAQ about the deal, Delicious makes it clear that user data will be preserved and that the new team will 'add new features and grow the service overall.'"

More acquisitions: VMWare has for some reason acquired SlideRocket. Also, Desire2Learn has acquired Captual. Pearson has acquired Schoolnet. And speculation continues about potential purchasers of Blackboard.
