List of US 2008 Web / Tech acquisitions

I’ve just found an interesting list of all the web and technology acquisitions that took place in 2008 and it makes interesting reading. Despite the long list of 106 acquisitions, there was a significant volume drop in the year.

Noticeably in the social network space, Bebo are there at $850m. In online advertising there was Buy.at for $150m and in the software category, MySQL sold to Sun for $1b.

The full list can be seen at the PartnerUp website here.
