Delicious has a new owner

As you can see, I'm a user of the social bookmarking site Delicious, or to use its original name, del.icio.us. It was previously owned by Yahoo!, which announced last December that they didn't want it anymore. This led to panic amongst Delicious users, as a rumour went round that the site was going to close. Yahoo! quickly issued a statement that they weren't closing it, they were selling it, and now the new owners have been announced - AVOS, a company founded by the users of YouTube. Hopefully they might develop the site a bit more - Delicious has had the feel of a resource with untapped potential for a while.

And while we're at it, can we have the cool URL back please?
