Friends – together we have traveled far and wide, you and the small and humble folk at Tomfoolery, Inc., and now it’s time for us to move to the next phase of our journey. Today, we are announcing that we’ve reached an agreement to join Yahoo to help build the next generation of communications and community products. If you’re familiar with our backgrounds, you’ll see that we have long loved Yahoo and the products it has created. We are so incredibly proud and excited to be joining this company (and for some of us, it’s a bit of a homecoming).
We will be taking our passion for beautiful, human communication products and using it to build the next generation of social Yahoo products. As of today, we have disabled new user sign ups for Anchor. At deal close, we will discontinue Anchor (and for those of you who were able to try it out, Action). The deal, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the next few days. We will provide more information on specific shutdown procedures in our final newsletter, when the transaction is complete.
So many of you have been our faithful advocates, and we hope you’ll continue to be part of our adventures. We are so grateful for your support throughout.
Here’s to the future. Yours and Ours!
Kakul Srivastava & the Tomfoolery Team
