Yahoo! continues to make all the right moves. From the post y.ah.oo! on the del.icio.us weblog we learn

We're proud to announce that del.icio.us has joined the Yahoo! family.  Together we'll continue to improve how people discover, remember and share on the Internet, with a big emphasis on the power of community.  We're excited to be working with the Yahoo! Search team - they definitely get social systems and their potential to change the web. (We're also excited to be joining our fraternal twin Flickr!)

We want to thank everyone who has helped us along the way - our employees, our great investors and advisors, and especially our users.  We still want to get your feedback, and we look forward to bringing you new features and more servers in the future.

I look forward to continuing my vision of social and community memory, and taking it to the next level with the del.icio.us community and Yahoo!

Congrats to Joshua Schachter and the Yahoo! folks. This is definitely a great match.

Just curious, Dare, why is this "definitely" a great match? To me it seems more like a conflict with MyWeb. The more I think about this deal, the less it makes sense. I've been looking for others to give some specific details on why this is such a great deal for Yahoo (obviously it's a good deal for Joshua and the VC firm) but most the commentary I'm reading is all backslapping and congrats.
