I'm Officially Ending My Yahoo Boycott (Starting Today)

Ever since Yahoo sold it's soul the mighty Yuan a few years back by illegally handing user information over to the Chinese authority (which resulted in this poor guy being tortured) I decided to boycott all things Yahoo.

While this may seem trivial to Google fanboys (and girls), this meant that I had to give up some very useful services, like, Flickr and Jumpcut.

Even though Jerry Yang eventually apologized, I still didn't feel like placing my info upon their servers until I felt like the company actually cared about keeping it's users happy than about how many bearocratic rear ends they kissed.

After reading about Yahoo's current spout with Belgium over user privacy (in which they are protecting the user rights of a few douchbags) I have decided to end my boycott by opening a new Flickr, Delicious and Jumpcut account, as well as unblock Yahoo ads online.

I may even join Yahoo Publisher, although for now I am quite satisfied with Google AdSense. :-)
