Yahoo! will be combined with AOL? Wow, it's Sears and K-Mart all over again, two more drunks clinging to each other desperately hoping to manage a straight line.

Tho' I guess in this case Verizon is in there too, lashing them together.

Fuck, this means Verizon will now own Tumblr. ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

"US internet firm Yahoo is being acquired by American telecoms giant Verizon Communications for nearly $5bn (£3.8bn) in cash.

Yahoo will be combined with AOL, another faded internet star, which Verizon bought last year."

I think reports of the imminent demise of Tumblr are probably exaggerated, although I don't imagine it means anything good for them, just as it really didn't when Yahoo took ownership. But it does make me wonder if anyone's found a way to back up or export one's tumblr.

I'm concerned they'll decide to shut down Yahoo Groups, which can't be making any money, and that therefore we'll lose some certain list archives. That, I don't know how to go about getting an archive backup of, either.
