Delicious acquired by YouTube Founders

I wrote recently about the fact that Delicious might be discontinued by Yahoo!, but today I have good news! This from the Delicious blog:

Today, we’re pleased to announce that Delicious has been acquired by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. As creators of the largest online video platform, they have firsthand experience enabling millions of users to share their experiences with the world. They are committed to running and improving Delicious going forward.

Providing a seamless transition for users is incredibly important for both companies. Yahoo! will continue to operate Delicious until approximately July 2011. When the transition period is complete, your information will be moved over to Delicious’ new owner.

This hopefully means that your Delicious mashups will continue to work for a long long time!
