Congrats to Mark and Bloglines!
2005-02-09

By now, everyone knows that Ask Jeeves has purchased Bloglines. I'm still getting over my disappointment that it wasn't Google (don't know if we even tried, not my department) and my surprise that Mark actually wanted to go down that path again. But that doesn't change the excitement and validation that comes from doing the deal.

So congratulations are certainly in order. Huzzah!

On the flip side, I've never paid much attention to Ask Jeeves before. I guess I missed when they acquired iWon (which means they have Excite and MyWay).
