Google bought Feedburner. Now that’s an acquisition that makes sense. I still insist that Google’s acquisition of Youtube was a short term win (that ad inventory couldn’t fall in the hands of the competition!) but a long term strategic mistake (every piece of inventory Google owns makes its ad serving technology less independent).

By the way, in my dealings with the Feedburner team, I have to say they rock!
