February 1st

I’ve been gone for a while, but I have a new philosophy on posting. My plan now is to post more often, but make them a lot shorter, occasionally adding one of my typical multi-paragraph posts. That’s almost it for now, but I also want to comment on Microsoft’s unsolicited bid for Yahoo. Why? I don’t see much advantage in combining two companies that are losing to Google. Microsoft needs to continue its path of smaller acquisitions that pick at Google one piece at a time while Yahoo would be better in the hands of a company that doesn’t currently have a significant online presence; think IBM or AT&T.

By the way, just so everyone knows, I haven’t stopped writing during my break, I just haven’t posted. I have over a dozen drafts that haven’t found there way to the website, but may slowly appear post dated.
