[google acquires doubleclick]

It’s official.

Update: Okay, so here’s the Google press release, and it’s a little scary. Key graf:

As with most mergers, there may be reductions in headcount. We expect these to take place in the U.S. and possibly in other regions as well. We know that DoubleClick is built on the strength of its people. For this reason we’ll strive to minimize the impact of this process on all of our clients and employees.

Oy. I would like to think that I’m safe, but who knows?
