Big fish eat little fish. It’s the way of the business world. Sometimes, it’s a welcomed meal for the “eaten” when a larger company gives them a lot of money to get their assets and often their people as well such as with Microsoft’s purchase of Yammer. For others, it’s not quite as welcome. In the case of Digg, the company passed on a deal worth $80 million in 2011 only to be scrapped for parts by 3 bigger fish for a total of $16 million (and that number is a bit generous).
