Akamai to Acquire Linode

Kyle Alspach on venturebeat.com:

Akamai Technologies announced today it has reached an agreement to acquire infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) platform provider Linode for approximately $900 million, in a move to help enable Akamai to become the world’s most distributed compute platform.”

Always concerning when a big corporation takes over a cool relatable company. Usually it doesn’t get worse, it just stops getting better. But sometimes, planets plus culture aligns and the addition resources makes something really cool.

I just hope my mini shared-host price stays at $5 a month.
