“Yes we are in the bubble” I read today on Twitter…..what better time to start consolidating your business, and arming your business for the future. If we look at online services we see a couple of new collaborations, aiming on consolidation the future of both flat companies:
- Mashable and Gowalla team up to connect people. Through the Gowalla App you can find and collect the Mashable pins for the Mashable SXSWi House (Austin, Tx, March 13 & 14)
- America On Line acquired OutsideIN a local newgatherer….hoping to get a strong base on local newsgathering as a supplement in the take-over off the Huffington Post. Together, both companies will serve OAL with a complete newsdesk connecting online newspaper and blogs.
- Microsoft’s Bing teams up with travel search site Kayak to incorporate the travel search results of Kayak into Bing’s search results.
