Yahoo is getting serious in the social Web 2.0 scene. They have signed an agreement to acquire contest site Bix (TechCrunch has more), and is rumored to be in serious talks with MyBlogLog. That later one is especially interesting for the blogosphere, being a ever growing multi-blog community solution. It’€™s actually pretty interesting, and is indeed spread over major sites such as TechCrunch, Wallstrip and so on. I haven’€™t tried it out myself, but it sure looks nice.
So what are Google buying today? Gravatar.com?
