A co-worker just pointed it out. I'm not sure why, but I'm amused.

I guess it's just more of the same--consolidation in the search and paid listings businesses.

Anyone wanna guess who's gonna be next?

Don't forget more implosion. LookSmart is dying a slow and painful death. I give them a year, tops.

What I'm more interested in is who uses AltaVista, and why?

I use Yahoo (because I'm on My Yahoo all the time for mail, weather, Fantasy NBA standings, news, etc.) and Google (cuz it r0x0rz!).

Besides web search Altavista offers a search technology for internet/intranet searches. This is a stand alone solution, but I don't know which percentage of their business is based on this search tool. But perhaps this deal is the end of that division? And it would be interesting to hear whether Googles search appliance has superseded the Altavista search software.
