it beats as it sweeps as it cleans is the latest site to get hoovered up by yahoo. (and on that note, it looks like is limping back to life. the xml version of my favorites is working again.)

somewhere i have a list of links that i was going to fold into a rumination on startups, lifestyle businesses, and the current trend of turning a small website into a job with a big web company. (and by that, i mean yahoo. has google made any of those sorts of acquisitions since blogger? i guess cnet has gotten into the game with their acquisition of consumating.)

one thing that is interesting to note is how many of these have sprung from people not located in the bay area. are they out of ideas up there?
