Technorati Aquisition Rumors

A post today by B.L. Ochman ignited rumors that Technorati may be acquired in the near future:

Technorati About to Be Sold

Here’s a tip I was given this morning from a venture capitalist who is “heavily invested” in the blogosphere: Technorati is about to be sold to a large search engine company. The deal should go down in about a week.

My bet is on Yahoo! Where’s yours?

True? Wild speculation? We have no idea. Sure are a lot of acquisition rumors this week though.

Is this story (“Murdoch is Set to Buy a Search Company”) related? It looks like we’re not the only ones seeing the connection.

Update: Jeff Jarvis says “I’m seeing rumblings that it’s not true.”
