Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
@mpouraryan, good analogy with Thrifty ice cream.  We will follow the Yahoo bread crumbs and find where it leads.

Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
The earnings tomorrow will be key along with the comments on the pending bids.      As I noted, I believe the brand will endure--as the Thrifty Ice Cream Brand has endured.  The question where it all goes?

Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
@mpouraryan, good thoughts.  I believe that whoever bids and prevails will have a very "strategic" purpose in mind for buying Yahoo - I think they will have done their due diligence - Note:  Price will be another interesting matter - So I think as we see who wins, it will provide clues as to their plans for Yahoo.  And then we will be able to watch and see if they can deliver and really make the acquisition pay.

This will be interesting to watch.

The question is who--if the Owners of the Daily Mail Prevail, who knows where they'd take Yahoo?

Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
Bidders had til today to submit bids for Yahoo--this I shared on my Personal Twitter Feed earlier on the predicament said it all--and I am seeing reports the numbers will not be pretty tomorrow.    Sometimes, transformation can take the wrong turn......

Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
@mhhf1ve, good assessment.  I agree about Yahoo - at least they have retained their credible functionality, or they wouldn't be of interest to sellers.  Whoever buys them can now provide focus and position the capability of Yahoo into a value chain that can be competitive, I believe.

Re: paradox (Brief thoughts)
I think we've scratched the surface in this transformation journey.    The challenge is to make sure that this is sustainable--While guarding against this I have noted throughout our deliberations:

Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
@mpouraryan, agreed - just being cool for cool's sake is hollow and does not hold one's attention.  I think some of the political sites think just throwing technology into the message is cool.

Yes, I believe Yahoo lost its focus.  It will be interesting today to see who the bidders are!

Re: paradox (Brief thoughts)
@mpouraryan, "dizzying" indeed.  That's why Moore's Law - which initially applied to the advancement of technology - is still relevant in describing the pace of change, the multiple combinations of change create new opportunities in and of themselves.

I don't think we will be bored!

Again, that makes staying current (ie Telco Transformation) is a necessity today!  Otherwise what you know today is replace by new things tomorrow.

Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
Yahoo as a brand will endure--and some of the very things Marisa Meyer did in moving Yahoo towards a more mobile friendly future (the so-called hail mary that some alluded to) will help whoever ultimately takes it on.
