Yahoo! Picks Shuts Down After 12 Years

Its sad that the amazing Yahoo! Picks is shutting down and will stop updating in 2008. Yahoo! Picks was a one-stop great resource to find cool stuff around the web as the Yahoo staff posted their selected best links…

The new year post on Yahoo Picks says..

We’re sorry to say that Picks has stopped updating. After 12 years, we’re moving on to new projects and fresh ways of highlighting cool sites across the Web. We’ll still be here in different guises, like on Yahoo! Green writing about eco-friendly sites, or Yahoo! Answers calling out cool questions, or on the Yahoo! Buzz Log, sifting through what people are searching for online. And the Yahoo! Picks archive will remain available to anyone who wants to wander in. Thanks for your support and attention all these years.

Don’t miss the 2007 Picks of the Year, the most popular picks, and the Computers & Internet picks.

Possibly Yahoo! will continue posting interesting stuff at Yahoo! Buzz, where a subject’s buzz score is the percentage of Yahoo! users searching for that subject on a given day.
