The Santa Monica-based, tech studio Science has bookmarked a new property for their portfolio: Delicious.
Science is a fund/incubator/studio/adviser that helps to grow start-ups, helping the likes of Dollar Shave Club, Urban Remedy and Medium Corporation. Delicious was formerly owned by Chad Hurley and Steve Chen of AVOS Systems (also the founders of YouTube.)
Delicious will become the “cornerstone asset” of Science with an official blog post stating:
“Millions of people rely on Delicious everyday to save and share their favorite content across the web and mobile. With over a billion links served daily, users save and organize the links they find most interesting around the web. Their understanding of trending content is unparalleled, and their mobile- and browser- based customer experience is the best, bar none.”
The acquisition should keep the main features and functionality that Delicious users love. Science has stated that they will put a focus on giving users “quality, uninterrupted service.” For the full release see the official blog post from Science.
