Like many of you, I’ve been watching closely to see what will become of yesterday’s super-dot-com, Yahoo!, as Jerry Yang and pals try desperately to avoid Microsoft’s low-ball $46.6 billion hostile takeover.
Phew! Jen and I can’t wait until somebody attempts a $46.6 billion takeover of DISGRASIAN. Sorry, readers, at that point there will be no resistance, only island-purchasing. But you’ll all be invited to stay awhile!
Regarding Yahoo!’s reticence, I recently read an assessment of Yang that I never thought I’d see:
“According to one source close to the situation, ‘The emotional part of Yang would rather do anything but sell to Microsoft, but he doesn’t have the cards to come up with a value-creating, competitive alternative for shareholders.’”
My stoic, terse, anal-retentive, never-say-cry, Hardass Asian Dad and I have a pretty simple message for weepy Mr. Yang: “Do not emote. Sell! Sell! Sell!”
