Web Property Feeding Freenzy...

Buy-Buy-Buy!...

There has been a truly remarkable number of web properties (sites, tools, projects) change hands in the last two weeks.

  • This kinda started out a couple months ago with AOLs news division buying the Engadget tech site.
  • Then LinkedIn bought Rapportive, one of my can't-live-without-it Gmail plugins. Fortunately, they plan to keep it running.
  • Then the team at Buffer App, which I really like, acquired the coding responsibilities of the Digg Digg, social share button plugin for WordPress. This is a good move as the original dev was a bit flighty. Though how loyal the Buffer team is to the open source community remains to be seen.
  • Mashable is believed to be in talks with CNN over a possible acquisition. Like Engaget, this one does not thrill me. Though it will open the stage for someone to step into that role over time.
  • And last but not least, the death keel plays for Posterous as Twitter buys them up and plans to remove support from them.
