Yahoo! Gives to Automattic

Big news recently was the movement of, a popular ping service, to Automattic, the keepers of WordPress. It seems Automattic has been entrusted with continuing to develop though I don’t understand how they can effectively do that while managing all of the other projects they currently have on the go. Automattic as a company seems to be expanding quickly. Acquiring companies, and now managing for Yahoo!.

It is interesting to see a company the size of Yahoo! give developmental control over any of their properties, though has not seen a major update in some time, from what I can see. It was time to either let it die, or get rid of it, and I think they made the smarter choice.

What will Automattic do with going forward? If anyone has any ideas, speculation, or actual information, I’d love to know.
