Yup, the big announcement we’ve been sneaking around and working up to is that we’ve been acquired by Yahoo!. We’re really excited about this, and here’s the big reason why… they have free espresso on campus! That’s right, no more $80 a week Starbucks bills!
Another reason we’re excited about it, is the very cool big picture. See, when we first thought of Konfabulator, one of the key pieces was accessing internet content. Well guess what Yahoo has boat-loads of? Yup. And what’s really great is that they’re starting to open it up to everyone in a format that’s useable outside the traditional browser, as XML feeds. Guess how they’re going to provide real-world examples of how to use this stuff. Yup… Konfabulator. So really, depending on how you look at it, we’re taking over Yahoo! We’re going to make it so the best way to access their data is via slick little Widgets.
Really, really cool for them!
I’m gonna download and see what there is to play with…
