Feedburner is in Google oven now.

This Techcrunch article explains, what was a rumor for sometime now as to be a fact. Rumors about Google acquiring RSS management company Feedburner from last week, started by ex-TechCrunch UK editor Sam Sethi, are accurate and are now confirmed according to a source close to the deal. Feedburner is in the closing stages of being acquired by Google for around $100 million. The deal is all cash and mostly upfront, according to our source, although the founders will be locked in for a couple of years.

The information we have is that the deal is now under a binding term sheet and will close in 2-3 weeks, and there is nothing that can really derail it at this point.


Google official blog explains the deal and a audio file, the discussion with feedburner CEO.

RailsConf more stuff.... Opening Keynote and ....

I am not going to write about the opening keynote because someone else have done a really good job of it. Actually a whole bunch of it. Since my writing (I write?) is really bad and information is all I am trying to provide, I will have to direct you to Nick Sieger. (If you have touched, ActiveRecord-JDBC connector, or seen inner working of JRuby + NanoContainer, you have been touched by Nick.)

Once I found that Nick was blogging, and found that I can catch up with presentations, that I have missed!, I gave up even thinking about writing. He did write a lot of very good material, I spent a lot of time reading his blog already!

Once you read his articles, you will feel that you have actually been in the presentation.

Here are the article;

Railsconf, Ruby on Rails and Portland

I was hooked on Ruby on Rails from the day I discovered it almost a year ago. Railsconf now in session in Portland is a sold out event!
Just to keep railsconf news tidbits afloat, My favorite tool, Komodo,

Active State has a IDE for Ruby On Rails
ActiveState, the leading provider of tools and services for dynamic languages, released the latest version of Komodo IDE today at RailsConf 2007, introducing unparalleled Ruby and Ruby on Rails support to the award-winning development environment. Komodo IDE 4.1 is a multi-platform, multi-language IDE for dynamic languages and Ajax technologies, now featuring the most advanced Ruby and Rails editing and debugging available in any development tool.

But I liked the Fiveruns studio better
FiveRuns, a pioneer of enterprise-class management for Rails
and other popular open source and commercial systems, today announced the general
availability of RM-Manage, the first product offering within the FiveRuns Enterprise Management Suite for Rails. Built to integrate with the FiveRuns Enterprise Management Platform, the Enterprise Management Suite for Rails will ensure Rails applications are enterprise-ready, performing and available.

BlogTopsites and Blogflux services are under one roof now!

The services provided by Blogflux is very familiar to blog authos and publishers. I use Blogflus services in many a weblogs and direct others to do the same.
Blogtopsites ranks weblogs based on number of visitors to weblogs or blogs. Although they are both owned by the same company, Bloggy Network (Thanks goes to Vincent McBurney for clearing it up. Like him I thought the same when I got the Blogtopsites email). Good news is that you can use both the services with a single sign on at Blogflux.

I did not have any problems with this merger fd , but there seems to be some problems with some sites. (I just noticed that I lost one of my site registration, although everything works fine.f4324asdd)
May be I should send an email and get it corrected.

Vincent has written a better article and instead of rewriting I will direct you to his article! fddfa

Fix duplicate accounts here

I tried to capture my screens but seems to be having a bad luck with it. So I just got the image from Google Analytics blog.
Visit or Join Google analytics if you are not a member and enjoy all those insider views into your site/s.
