Among those products Yahoo is either killing or merging into other projects: Delicious, Yahoo Buzz, MyBlogLog, Altavista, and a few others blog [zeldman.com]


For a couple of days now, we’ve been hearing rumors that the Yahoo layoffs included the entire Delicious team. Now Former Yahoo employee and Upcoming founder Andy Baio has tweeted out the above Yahoo! product team meeting slide that seems to show that Yahoo! is either closing or merging the social bookmarking service as well as Upcoming, Fire Eagle, MyBlogLog and others. Listed under the ominous “Sunset” are: Delicious, Altavista, MyBlogLog, Yahoo! Bookmarks, Yahoo! Picks

Delicious, MyBlogLog and Upcoming have been somewhat neglected since being acquired by Yahoo and founders Joshua Schachter, Marcoullier and Baio have all moved on to do other (more successful) things. Perhaps one tell tale sign of Delicious’ demise? The support forums are now riddled with spam and team sign-off missives like the one below.

29. I used AltaVista in 2006.. it was good and Web was better.
Perhaps.. Web would have been better today, if many of many nice things have survived or centralized together.

We all are still Web here.. but we lost 50% of Web it was 10+ years before.
