RE: Yahoo News suspends all commenting to make site "safe"

in #news2 years ago

You are kind of remembering it correctly. The tech startup that eventually became the "inner workings" of Google offered to sell their business to Yahoo for $1 million back in 1998 and later in 2002 Google offered to sell to Yahoo for $5 billion. Yahoo scoffed at the offer. Today Google is worth $500 billion but I think it is safe to say that much of this has to do with Google's own team and that Yahoo probably would have screwed that up.
