Yahoo and Flickr: One More Hint That Deal is Near
The folks at SiliconValleyWatcher.com have led the way on the coverage of rumors that Yahoo may buy Flickr. The current speculation is that the announcement will take place on March 29.
One of our well-placed moles just came out of a meeting with a VC who seemed to have an inside angle, referring to Flickr as a “previously private company.” There’s nothing concrete here, but it’s another indication that the deal is probably near.
As we said back in November when we profiled Flickr, the company looked like it “could be acquisition bait.” We guess we’ll find out on March 29, if not sooner.
