The acquisition of Feedburner by Google has been confirmed at Read/Write Web (and elsewhere, but it’s from RWW that I grabbed the GooBurner logo).
There seem to be widgets, widgets, everywhere these days… except in feeds. I’ve felt for a while that it’s only a matter of time before I start seeing widgets all over the feeds in my reader. I fear that the GooBurner deal brings the day closer. It’s not a day I’ll welcome, since I value feeds for giving me content (preferably the whole content), and nothing but the content (well, maybe a little metadata).
