For some reason, Launch sent me an email today telling me that they were being assimilated into Yahoo. That led me to discover that I completely missed the fact that they were acquired by Yahoo way back in July. Here’s a link to the press release. (Update: they made me merge my Launch account with my Yahoo account. Finally I get to be rafeco instead of rafeco2 on Launch. In the meantime, a lot of the collaborative filtering stuff seems to be disabled.)
