Technorati About to be Sold

B.L. Ochman is saying that “Technorati is about to be sold to a large search engine company. The deal should go down in about a week.”

My bet is Yahoo – Yahoo has already bought Blo.gs and Flickr. They started their own social networking blog product Yahoo 360. They have been very aggressive with recent investments (Alibaba) and my bet is they are the ones who grab this one. Technorati fits in well with their current blogish acquisitions.
