Does anyone have thoughts on the impact (positive or negative) the acquisition will on the Austin tech scene, given this is where HomeAway is headquartered?

If Expedia keeps the company/team intact (which it sounds like it will in the news story), I don't think very much will change in Austin as a result. Homeaway is typically touted as one of the Austin unicorns, and now I guess they will go down in lore as one more success story.
