Congratulations to the guys from Upcoming.org for their acquisition by Yahoo. You can read Andy Baio’s take on it over at waxy.org. The three creators of the site will be working at Yahoo, and I’m sure they were paid for their troubles as well. Not only is this great news for them, but it’s great news for the little guy in general. It’s always nice to be reminded that if you build something cool in your spare time, it can turn into something much bigger.
Update: I also see that NewsGator has continued to roll up RSS aggregator companies, this time purchasing NewNewsWire. Hopefully this is fantastic news for Brent Simmons personally, but we’ll have to see what it means for NetNewsWire users. (I’ve recently just started using it myself.)
