Jobster acquires Workzoo !

Now this is really juicy news in the online recruitment world. I noticed something verry interesting after US midnight pacific time. The Workzoo blog announces that they are joining Jobster.com. This is the first major combination of vertical search and networking sites. And mark my words, it's going to have lots of ramifications.

Will the linkedin.com and simplyhired.com partnership undergo any metamorphosis? And what does this mean for other networking sites like Ryze and OpenBC?

The market will be interesting to watch !
