Trouble in UserLand?

By Deane Barker on July 8, 2003

Interesting things are happening at UserLand. John Robb has left, and Dave Winer is hinting that big changes are coming.

Two theories abound: (1) they will open source some or all (Frontier, Manila, Radio) of their products, or (2) they will be acquired. With Google’s purchase of Blogger some months ago, this wouldn’t be unprecedented. Don Park postulates that buyers could be Yahoo, Macromedia, Symantec, or Adobe.
