Yahoo Buys Bix

By - November 17, 2006

Bix Angel

Yahoo keeps up the pace of buying young Web 2 companies with its acquisition of Bix, which is run by a pal, Mike Spieser. Mike will take charge of community media at Yahoo (including photos and 360). Bix is a sort of “America’s Got Talent” writ across the web. You don’t think this stuff plays? Poke around a bit. It’s amazing how badly America wants to be Discovered. It’s quite something. It might not play in the Valley, but there’s a reason Idol and its kin do so well.
