Now, Hurley and Chen are acquiring Delicious for an undisclosed sum and founding a new company, AVOS. "A blog post on the Delicious site reassures users that the transition
from Yahoo to AVOS will be seamless and the service will continue," notes ReadWriteWeb. "As creators of the largest online video platform, [Chen and Hurley] have firsthand experience enabling millions
of users to share their experiences with the world," Delicious writes.
It's not yet clear how Delicious will change under its management, or what business AVOS will be in. In a statement, AVOS says its founders are "aggressively hiring to build a world-class team to take on the challenge of building the best information discovery service on the Web."
