Deal with the devil

Wow.

AltaVista has been sold to some company named Overture (Story.).

"Overture said AltaVista's advanced algorithmic search technology, which crawls the Web and returns relevant search results in response to users' queries, complements Overture's market-leading technology in commercial search. Overture provides pay-for-performance search results to partners like Yahoo Inc."

Pay-for-Placement. I'd write more about how bad that is, but work's gone insane.
