Never, Never, Never Go Public

Microsoft backed off.  What will Yahoo have to look forward to?  Probably shareholder lawsuits. It must suck when you want to innovate and help shape digital media, and instead have to contend with a bunch of people who probably know little to nothing about the industry, complaining in your ear because they want to see a deal done at $37 a share.

The only way to make sure you can continue to innovate is to AVOID TAKING MONEY.  This is why I don't understand why Yang and the gang don't cash out and start up a new company, funding it with whatever they make from the sale of Yahoo stock.

Beholden to nobody is the new name of the game.
