On Yahoo! Acquiring Tumblr

Yahoo! and Tumblr

AllThingsD reports: Yahoo! Board to Meet Sunday to Consider $1.1 Billion, All-Cash Deal to Acquire Tumblr.

I’d say no to this deal! Remember what happened to Delicious and Flickr, among others, after they were acquired by Yahoo!? Can you imagine if the next time you login to Tumblr you are greeted with a Yahoo! account authentication? I can’t!

UPDATE: Yahoo Tumblrs for Cool: Board Approves $1.1 Billion Deal as Expected

It appears that the deal indeed went through. But I have to wait for the changes before any drastic action is taken to my Tumblr blog.
