What happens if Microsoft buys Yahoo?
Mike Warot on February 1, 2008 at 2:19 pm
I don’t trust Microsoft with my photos. I’ll pull ALL of them off Flickr as soon as the deal happens.
I’m already starting to invent the future, the post-flickr, post blogger, post typepad, decentralized future that allows me to do social networking without ANY corporate involvement.
How? – I’m starting with strategically placed comments to get the ball rolling in terms of ideas.

Microsoft + Yahoo = Microsoft

Good thread on the SVLUG list.

I don’t know what you mean by ANY corporate involvement, given America’s bipolar for-profit and not-for-profit economic system. I prefer open-source solutions like Zimbra when available and turn to Creative Commons ones like Ning when not. It makes me feel like I’m participating in that thing CEOs now call creative capitalism, that last turn of the knife before we all retire in Euros.

I think Google’s pathetic complaint about the deal is the best part so far… Google owns search and advertising, so they whine that Microsoft/Yahoo would own too much email? Please.

@carpetbomberz While it's strange at first to be back after half a century, I think this project will be a huge boon for Fort Lee.

@djchall @anildash That wasn't my monitor, but one I envied at the my ad agency in Palo Alto. Still, sweet they were.
@martinn123 @NYTimesDowd I've sometimes wondered if he's ill. I'm serious. His detachment is a little too strange.

An @NiemanLab / @ShorensteinCtr interview by @martinn123 bit.ly/1nNLMf6 Love to edit it down... :-)
@Steve_Lockstep @isaach Maybe not accidental then. Killing time waiting for a Genius at the Apple Store....
