Blo.gs moves to Automattic

News today that Automattic/we have acquired blo.gs from Yahoo!. We approached Yahoo! a while ago to ask about their plans for blo.gs and were able to structure a deal to take it over. We plan to maintain continuity for blo.gs users. Matt has more details.

I don’t know if this is part of a larger trend of Yahoo! concentrating more on its core business, but I found Yahoo! to be refreshingly quick and focused to work with on this deal.
