2005, the year of making money off blogs and RSS continues. Congrats to Nick! Please re-brand NewsGator Online to something else as I've suggested before. I am sure Sheila and Brent and NetNewsWire are the next to get acquired and hopefully in the fullness of time make lots more money!
From Newsgator buys FeedDemon.:
Update: It is a done deal. More details here on Business 2.0 weblog, posted by me of course. Its a cash-and-stock deal, and Nick will joing Newsgator. The big question in my mind: will Newsgator finally buy a Mac desktop application and fill out the obvious hole in its product portfolio.
