This week on the EIC Squared podcast Larry Dignan
and I discuss the merits of AOL's $850 million Bebo acquisition
and the status of Microsoft's pursuit of Yahoo. Apparently the Microsoft and Yahoo are holding informal talks
. The general consensus among industry watchers is that Yahoo should take the money and run, especially if its first quarter earnings are going to disappoint Wall Street. Larry explains the role IT played
in helping to turn Eliot Spitzer into an ex-governor of New York, and I outline the latest developments in the Semantic Web
, including Yahoo's efforts
in this emerging area.
