Ed Meyer, Yahoo director?
Either I haven't been paying attention, or none of us have, because I just noticed that Ed Meyer is listed as one of Carl Icahn's prospective board members of Yahoo. Ed Meyer, as in the head of Grey for six gazillion years (OK, it was really 36 years). Interesting that this part of the Yahoo battle sort of pits former MacManus Group chief Roy Bostock (Yahoo's chairman), against the former head of Grey. And you thought this was all about Carl Icahn vs. Jerry Yang. In other news, allegedly Microsoft has offered to buy Yahoo's search business and take a minority a stake in the company. Makes sense to me.
