ASK JEEVES HAS ACQUIRED BLOGLINES

Bloggers won't keep a secret, so it is now official: Ask Jeeves has bought Bloglines. The search engine has now entered the "web log market." Go to Ask Jeeves blog and read the post, Welcome, Bloglines! This is an interesting quote from Mark Fletcher's Letter to Bloglines Subscribers. [Editor's note: I have emphasized the word, gold standard, in bold text.]

Our users have been amazing help in guiding the evolution of Bloglines, and we hope you will continue to give us input so we can remain the gold standard in blogging, search, and news aggregation. (Bloglines.com.)
