Hello, Yahoo

Posted on | April 19, 2008 | Comments Off

I’ve begun using Yahoo for all that I can in an effort to help them resist a hostile takeover by Microsoft. What am I doing?

  • Using Yahoo more
  • Favoring ads to neat geek stuff served by Yahoo
  • Asking my friends to stop using Microsoft products (that’s nothing new)

I don’t want to see Microsoft advance a campaign that makes the business of Internet search and advertising any more of an oligopoly than it already is. Having only three major players in the industry is scary enough, having just two would be downright frightening.

The best way to help block this is to drive up the value of Yahoo. Just using it when you can will help, so I am.
