Yahoo (YHOO) paid $30M - 90% in cash, 10% in stock - to acquire Summly, several sources tell Kara Swisher. On source suggests reeling in founder Nick D'Aloisio was a big part of Yahoo's motivation in buying the startup. "Nick will be a great person to put in front of the media and consumers with Mayer to make Yahoo seem like it is a place that loves both entrepreneurs and mobile experiences, which in turn will presumably attract others like him."
