In the spirit of Read and Comment Day, since I couldn’t find a place to comment on Marc Andreesen’s blog, I will do it here. His latest posting discusses the current Microsoft’s attempt to acquire Yahoo with an analysis of what might happen were it to turn hostile. It is a great primer on what happens when one company tries to acquire another that is resistant to said takeover. The many possible outcomes and what they mean are fascinating.
It is a pretty good read that I highly recommend.
