"Gleaned some more info on the Moreover's acquisition by VeriSign, through sources ... the $25 million is on the low side; it is closer to $30 million, from what I know. Google did come in at the last minute with a higher bid, but too late ... the deal was done."

"This latest acquisition is a part of an attempt to provide "some structure to the endless content or chat available on the Internet and to monetize blogs," said one person familiar with the company."
