Yeah, Sure, This Is Worth a Couple Million Dollars

VeriSign buys Dave Winer’s for $2 million, and announces version 2.0, which will apparently be a complete re-write of the back end. Do not confuse this deal with AOL’s purchase of Weblogs Inc. (Via Kottke, who gets credit for the scoop on this story.)

Update: Winer on the deal.
