Google Buys Riya


I love a PR victory story.  A PR strategy executed without repercussions.  Launch. Sell.  Let google deal with the security concerns. 

Google has purchased Riya based on several accounts.

So, now, in the great convergence, google has inherited both the google-chili-judge-and-entrant problem and the riya-we-don’t-realize-folks-don’t-like-big-brother problem. 

You have to admit, the Internet hasn’t been this fun since 1999.
