If you haven’t heard, our fellow Chicagoans at Feedburner are now part of Google. The official announcement was made today.

Congrats to the Feedburner crew and Google. Everyone I know at Feedburner is quality. Feedburner’s man in charge, Dick Costolo, is one the sharpest (and funniest) people I’ve been fortunate enough to meet in the past few years.

Great companies are made of great people and Google definitely gets greater with this acquisition.

Well done on both sides.
