  1. I posted a nice quote from Petronius Arbiter (written in AD 60) on the Paid Content article – thought you might like it:

    “I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralisation.”

  2. Warning: Geek Alert

    “Yahoo shares lost nearly half their value, from a high of more than $43 in January 2006. On Wednesday, shares dipped below a 52-week low of $22.44 before recovering slightly to close at $22.55, up 3 cents.”

    Maybe because its site doesn’t validate. Ha. Ha.

  3. This is incredibly sad. I’m not big fan of yahoo’s but the piling on is getting ridiculous. Let’s all be clear: we’re seeing a once-great company enter into its decline phase.
