more yahoo web takover

Weird / interesting: Yahoo! bought upcoming.org. Does that mean that they've de facto re-instated their old "cool links" section through indirect [?] ownership of waxy.org?

As with all Yahoo! takeovers, let's hope it stays the way of flickr, and doesn't go the way of geocities. (on edit, was Geocities really ever all that good?)

(via waxy [#])


There's been some static about how Yahoo! has treated Flickr, tho -- first the botched account merger (http://news.com.com/2100-1038_3-5844383.html) and now the fact that you can't sign up for Flickr anymore except by getting a Yahoo! ID. There's an interesting comparison of the two signup workflows here (http://37signals.com/svn/archives2/flickr_signup_from_human_to_droid_in_a_yahoo_moment.php).
Yeah. Maybe I'm keeping my head in the sand because I just like flickr and haven't seen any changes to my own personal experience. I hope they smooth things over before transition day.
