Ask Jeeves Buys Bloglines

Bloglines | News Well it’s official now. Ask Jeeves is buying Bloglines for an undisclosed amount of money. Mary Hodder first broke the story on Saturday and although CNET is reporting the announcement will happen tomorrow it looks like Bloglines is choosing to first release the news, appropriately enough, via RSS to their subscribers.

John Battelle has more on the news here. Although the speculation that Mary Hodder was asked not to release the news was denied by her yesterday it would certainly appear that John can keep a secret. Nice timing though on his write up 7 minutes after Bloglines released the news themselves.

Dave Sifry over at Technorati reminds people of a good way to keep track of the Bloglines/Ask Jeeves news. Hmmm… will Technorati be next?
