Pinboard bought Delicious

Maciej AKA Pinboard has been talking about buying del.icio.us for a long time. Today, Pinboard bought Delicious. I’m curious what he has in store for it.

As for the ultimate fate of the site, I’ll have more to say about that soon. Delicious has over a billion bookmarks and is a fascinating piece of web history. Even Yahoo, for whom mismanagement is usually effortless, had to work hard to keep Delicious down. I bought it in part so it wouldn’t disappear from the web.

Even if he bought it only to save the history of the web, it’s worth the purchase.

Do not attempt to compete with Pinboard.
