    He most likely means their motive and their reasoning... probably because these services are now dead and not used by anyone? the expenses to run these may out weigh their value or profit margin?

    I read about this the other day. I use Delicious and Yahoo Buzz quite a bit. If anyone finds any similar alternatives let me know.

    Yahoo Carol Bartz is the Margret Thatcher of the internet world. She should be fired asap before she does any more damage.

    It was widely reported that Yahoo would be shutting down its social bookmarking service Delicious. It turns out that Yahoo plans not to close it, but to sell it.

    Is Delicious being shut down? And should I be worried about my data?
    - No, we are not shutting down Delicious. While we have determined that there is not a strategic fit at Yahoo!, we believe there is a ideal home for Delicious outside of the company where it can be resourced to the level where it can be competitive.

    What is Yahoo! going to do with Delicious?
    - We're actively thinking about the future of Delicious and we believe there is a home outside the company that would make more sense for the service and our users. We're in the process of exploring a variety of options and talking to companies right now. And we'll share our plans with you as soon as we can.

    Delicious is one of my favorite place for online bookmark. It will be sad to have it closed.

    They'll definitely close it down. Yahoo is in terrible disarray... I know many contacts there who are all looking to get out fast.
