Am I the only one afraid?
Micro$oft yet again wants Yahoo, only this time Yahoo isn't in much of a position (except philosophically) to say, "no."
This wouldn't be much of an issue (for me) except that I thought SBC's partnership w/ Yahoo was unnecessary at best. SBC's takeover by AT&T was insidious at best, and now the Evil Empire wants to be the guy schtupping the newly-reincarnated Ma Bell.
We staved off their hijacking of HTML w/ XML / XHTML, but in the position they're jockeying for, they could roll that back as the standard markup language and try again.
...or am I just paranoid?
