Google has bought Feedburner for $100M, according to Michael Arrington at TechCrunch. This deal has been rumoured for a while, but apparently now it’s a done deal.
I’m a Feedburner user, but frankly I have no real opinion about this news. I don’t think Google can change a lot about the terms of service – I doubt they could block feed-ads from other services, for example – so the move will likely go mostly unnoticed by users except for the superior integration we’ll see with Google’s other services for web publishers. Time will tell…

at least for now. I’ve signed up for Google’s AdSense program and I’m going to experiment with having a few ads on this site. I don’t expect that they will remain there indefinitely, but hopefully they won’t be too intrusive.
