Delicious has a new owner, AVOS - founder of YouTube

Yahoo! is excited to announce that Delicious has been acquired by the founders of YouTube, Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. As creators of the largest online video platform, Hurley and Chen have firsthand expertise enabling millions of consumers to share their experiences with the world. Delicious will become part of their new Internet company, AVOS.
To continue using Delicious, you must agree to let Yahoo! transfer your bookmarks to AVOS. After a transition period and after your bookmarks are transferred, you will be subject to the AVOS terms of service and privacy policy.
Reasons to let Yahoo! transfer your bookmarks
 Continue uninterrupted use of Delicious.
 Keep your Delicious account and all your bookmarks.

What happens if you do not transfer your bookmarks
 Delicious in its current form will be available until approximately July 2011.
 After that, you will no longer be able to use your existing Delicious account and will not have
access to your existing bookmarks or account information.
