Automattic Acquires PollDaddy.: From their recent bi-yearly assembly of Automattic folks, this time at Breckenridge Colorado, Matt announced that the PollDaddy service is the most recent member of the Automattic family and users will now be able to add polls to their WordPress blogs. He also said that the team is working on many features and customizations of polls to make the polls have the same look and feel as the blogs. There is a plugin for PollDaddy and Matt posts about the PollDaddy acquisition on his blog.

From the sound of things, a few cool projects might be announced and introduced in the few weeks following this Automattic meeting.

    Yet another good acquisition when seen on paper. However, I’ve become a big fan of Lester Chanz WP-Polls plugin which I probably won’t leave for Polldaddy. Now, Polldaddy will be able to be published on 4.4 million additional blogs.

    Great acquisition by Automatic. Everyone will profit from it, waiting to see the improvements and new developments.
