ReadBurner acquired

I’m happy to announce that ReadBurner has been acquired and will therefore live on!

The buyers include Adam Ostrow (editor in chief at Mashable), Drew Olanoff (former technology evangelist at Pluggd)  and Eric Kerr (creator of TinyLoad).

Drew and Adam contacted me last week, 1 day after I officially announced to close  ReadBurner. I got tons of mails to keep up the project and also a few requests of people who wanted to acquire ReadBurner. After some email discussions and phone calls, I decided to go with Drew, Adam and Eric because they understand and like the concept of sharing items through Google Reader as much as I do. Moreover they obviously have the skills and the resources to build a compelling web product.

The best part for me: I’m not leaving ReadBurner, they asked me to stay on their board of Advisers! I think ReadBurner now has a real bright future and I’m very excited.
