Yahoo Buys

This is very troubling. I love but I very rarely like anything that Yahoo comes up with. They just don't get user experience. Flickr still seems to be intact, but big companies like Yahoo have a way of wreaking havoc on very focused, tightly tuned sites like these. Google is a bit of an exception. Too bad they didn't buy

This site here, although it appears to be slightly unavailable at the moment. It's a social bookmarking site where people can share links using tags. Similar in concept to Flickr.

By the way, I have no affilation with the Y! people. Just my observations.

Sorry, that 'smart people' link should be Not .com.
